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:

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.
