cc -- Scoping Plan Workshop Series Ė Policy Mechanisms for Emission Reductions Workshop

Posted: 28 Dec 2007 09:01:28
The Air Resources Board (ARB) staff invites you to participate in
a public workshop to discuss potential policy mechanisms for
emission reductions that are being considered for inclusion in
the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Scoping Plan (Plan) required by the
California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, also known as
Assembly Bill 32 (AB 32).  This workshop will discuss the
process that ARB will use in evaluating policy mechanisms for
achieving the GHG emission reductions called for in AB 32.  The
mechanisms under consideration include direct emission reduction
measures, alternative compliance mechanisms, market-based
compliance mechanisms, potential monetary and non-monetary
incentives, and voluntary reductions for various sources and
categories of sources.  ARB is seeking input into the range of
mechanisms being considered for inclusion as part of the overall
AB 32 program, and the process ARB will use in evaluating the
options for inclusion in the Plan.  

The workshop is open to all interested parties.  It will be held
at the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) in Oakland
and will also be webcast.
