arbcombo -- February 15, 2017: Joint Meeting of the California Air Resources Board and the EJAC

Posted: 03 Feb 2017 16:42:12
The California Air Resources Board and the AB 32 Environmental
Justice Advisory Committee (Committee) are holding a joint public
meeting on February 15, 2017 from 1:30 pm to 6:00 pm (PST) at the
CalEPA Headquarters Building, Coastal Hearing Room, 1001 “I”
Street, Sacramento, California 95814.
The meeting notice and agenda are posted at:

The California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, (AB 32)
calls for the California Air Resources Board (CARB or Board) to
develop and approve a Scoping Plan that describes the approach
the State will take to reduce GHG emissions to 1990 levels by
2020.  AB 32 also required CARB to convene a global warming
environmental justice advisory committee, to advise the Board in
developing the Scoping Plan, and any other pertinent matter in
implementing AB 32. The advisory committee is comprised of
representatives from communities in the State with the most
significant exposure to air pollution, including, but not limited
to, communities with minority populations or low-income
populations, or both.

The Board appointed the first Environmental Justice Advisory
Committee (Committee) to advise it on the Initial Scoping Plan
and other climate change programs. To advise the Board on the
First Update to the Climate Change Scoping Plan, ARB reconvened a
new Committee on March 21, 2013. To replace members that either
changed positions and had to resign from the Committee or were
unable to serve, the Board appointed four new members on
September 25, 2015.  The Committee will advise the Board on the
development of the 2030 Target Scoping Plan Update, per Governor
Brown’s Executive Order B-30-15.

The first Scoping Plan was developed in 2008 and, per AB 32, must
be updated at least every five years.  The First Update to the
Climate Change Scoping Plan, approved by the Board on May 22,
2014, defined California’s climate change priorities for the
subsequent five years and laid the groundwork to start the
transition to the post-2020 goals set forth in Executive Orders
S-3-05 and B-16-2012.  In April 2015, Governor Brown set a new
interim statewide target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 40
percent below 1990 levels by 2030 and directed CARB to further
update the Scoping Plan to chart the path to achieving the 2030
target.  In 2016, the Legislature passed SB 32, which codified a
2030 GHG emissions reductions target of 40 percent below 1990
