sip -- Notice of Public Meeting to Consider the Revised Proposed 2016 State Strategy for the State Implementation Plan Posted: 07 Mar 2017 09:57:29
The Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) has released the Revised Proposed 2016 State Strategy for the State Implementation Plan (State SIP Strategy). The State SIP Strategy describes ARBís proposed measures and commitment to achieve the mobile source and consumer products reductions needed to meet federal air quality standards over the next 15 years. The Board will consider adoption of the State SIP Strategy, along with the Final Environmental Analysis (EA) and Response to Comments on the Draft EA, at its March 23-24, 2017 hearing. Since releasing the initial State SIP Strategy in May 2016, substantial progress has occurred in further developing various elements of the strategy. ARB staff held a workshop on September 1, 2016, and has initiated stakeholder discussions and workshops related to a number of measures. Staff also presented the State SIP Strategy and proposed measures to the Board on September 22, 2016 to receive Board direction, as well as to provide an additional opportunity for public comment. ARB staff has continued discussions with the United States Environmental Protection Agency on the importance of federal action for sources that are primarily under federal regulatory control. Finally, ARB staff has continued to work with both South Coast and San Joaquin Valley District staff on development of the strategy. This includes collaboration with the South Coast District on defining funding needs and mechanisms for implementing the strategy, and continuing to define the nature of the control strategy and associated emission reductions for meeting PM2.5 standards in the San Joaquin Valley over the next decade. The Revised Proposed 2016 State SIP Strategy is available at: https://www.arb.ca.gov/planning/sip/2016sip/2016sip.htm. The public comment period on the Draft EA ran from May 17 through July 18, 2016 and the Final EA and Response to Comments will be released prior to the March 23, 2017 hearing.
