arbcombo -- AB 32 Scoping Plan Update Schedule

Posted: 24 Feb 2017 10:33:55
Air Resources Board (CARB or Board) staff is providing the
information below to reflect the recent direction by the Board to
provide additional time prior to its consideration of AB 32
Scoping Plan Update (Scoping Plan) to achieve the 2030 target. 
This adjustment to the schedule will allow time for additional
public process, including environmental justice community
meetings, as staff develops the final Scoping Plan.  The Board
will consider the final Scoping Plan in June 2017.    
The schedule provided below identifies the timetable for the
release of public materials and the public workshop. This
schedule is subject to change, and ARB will send out subsequent
listservs as materials, workshop, and environmental justice
community meeting details become available. 

Schedule (subject to change)

•March:  Environmental Justice Community Meetings throughout the
•Week of March 13th: ARB Scoping Plan Public Workshop
•April 10: CEQA Comment Period Deadline (extended from March
•End of May: Public Availability of Final Draft Scoping Plan with
all Appendices
•Late June: Board Hearing to consider Final Draft Scoping Plan

This schedule reflects the upcoming public process to update the
AB 32 Scoping Plan to reflect Governor’s Executive Order B-30-15
and Senate Bill 32, which establish a mid-term greenhouse gas
(GHG) emissions reduction target for California of 40 percent
below 1990 levels by 2030.  All State agencies with jurisdiction
over sources of GHG emissions were directed to implement measures
to achieve reductions of GHG emissions to meet the 2030 and 2050
targets.  CARB was directed to update the AB 32 Scoping Plan. 
CARB and other State agencies are identifying the suite of
programs, regulations, incentives, and supporting actions needed
to continue driving down emissions and ensure we are on a
trajectory to meet our mid- and long-term climate goals.

The 2017 Scoping Plan Update Proposed Plan (Proposed Plan) was
made available on January 20th, 2017.  The Proposed Plan
describes the actions the State would take to achieve the SB 32
climate goals of reducing greenhouse gases of at least 40 percent
below 1990 levels by 2030.  It outlines an approach that cuts
across economic sectors to combine greenhouse gas reductions with
reductions of smog-causing pollutants, while also safeguarding
public health and economic goals.  It also describes the need to
extend key reduction programs now underway, lays out new actions
that prioritize direct emission reductions, and establishes the
trajectory that will move the State farther along the path to a
low-carbon future.

The Proposed Plan includes input from a range of State agencies. 
It is also the result of extensive public and stakeholder
processes designed to ensure that California’s greenhouse gas and
pollution reduction efforts continue to improve public health and
drive development of a more sustainable economy.
