The California Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) has posted the agenda for the public workshop on proposed California Phase 2 Greenhouse Gas (GHG) regulation and amendments to ARB’s existing Heavy-Duty Vehicle GHG Emission Reduction Regulation (Tractor-Trailer GHG regulation). The agenda can be accessed at: https://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/onroad/caphase2ghg/caphase2ghg.htm. This workshop will be held at the following time and location: Date: Monday, February 6, 2017 Time: 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Place: Cal/EPA Headquarters Building, Sierra Hearing Room 1001 I Street, Sacramento, California 95814 The workshop will also be available via webcast for stakeholders unable to attend in person and can be accessed at the following link on the day of the workshop: https://video.calepa.ca.gov/. To view the public workshop notice and for more information about the proposed California Phase 2 GHG standards, please go to: http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/onroad/caphase2ghg/caphase2ghg.htm. For the potential amendments to tractor-trailer GHG regulation, please go to: https://www.arb.ca.gov/listserv/listserv_ind.php?listname=hdghg. Contact: We welcome and encourage your participation in this workshop. If you have any questions regarding the proposed California Phase 2 or potential regulatory changes to Tractor-Trailer GHG Regulation, please contact Mr. Alex Santos, Staff Air Pollution Specialist, at (626) 575-6682 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ms. Mitzi Magtoto, Air Resources Engineer, at (916) 323-8975 or by email at email@example.com. Background: On October 25, 2016, the U.S. EPA published the final federal Phase 2 GHG standards. The federal Phase 2 standards are the second phase of federal heavy–duty GHG standards and build upon the federal Phase 1 standards. The federal Phase 2 standards will significantly reduce carbon emissions and dramatically improve the fuel economy for heavy-duty trucks, helping reduce emissions that cause climate change. They establish national GHG emission standards that will begin in model year 2021 for new class 2b to 8 medium- and heavy-duty engines and tractors, and in 2018 model year for certain trailer types. The federal Phase 2 standards will be fully phased in by model year 2027. On December 11, 2008, the Board approved the Tractor-Trailer GHG regulation codified in sections 95300-95312 of title 17, California Code of Regulations, and later amended in 2010 and 2014. This regulation required owners of 53-foot or longer box-type trailers and owners of the heavy-duty tractors that pull them on California highways to utilize U.S. EPA SmartWay verified or designated technologies that will reduce GHG emissions and improve fuel efficiency. In December 2013, ARB staff harmonized the tractor requirements of the Tractor-Trailer GHG regulation with the requirements of the Phase 1 standards. California is in a drought emergency.
