arbcombo -- 10/12/17 Workshop on the 2017 Climate Change Scoping Plan Posted: 26 Sep 2017 09:59:06
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is hosting a public workshop to present the updated 2017 Climate Change Scoping Plan: The Strategy for Achieving California’s 2030 Greenhouse Gas Target (2017 Scoping Plan) and solicit stakeholder input. CARB staff will present updated modeling results reflecting the direction provided in AB 398 and discuss the schedule for finalization of the 2017 Scoping Plan. The workshop is open to the public and full participation by all parties is encouraged: DATE: Thursday, October 12, 2017 TIME: 9:00 am to 12:00 pm PLACE: California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA) Byron Sher Auditorium 1001 I Street, 2nd Floor Sacramento, California 95814 This workshop is part of the 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) emission 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. AB 398, signed into State law on July 25, 2017, clarifies the role of the Cap-and-Trade Regulation through December 31, 2030, within the State’s climate strategy. The 2017 Scoping Plan describes the actions the State will take to achieve the SB 32 climate goals of reducing GHGs at least 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030. It outlines an approach that cuts across economic sectors to combine GHG reductions with reductions of smog-causing pollutants, while also safeguarding public health and economic goals. The 2017 Scoping Plan includes input from a range of State agencies. It is also the result of a two-year development process including extensive public and stakeholder outreach designed to ensure that California’s climate and air quality efforts continue to improve public health and drive development of a more sustainable economy. This Scoping Plan Update will reflect the direction from the legislature on the Cap-and-Trade Program, as described in AB 398, the need to extend the key existing emissions reductions programs, and acknowledges the parallel actions required under AB 617 to strengthen monitoring and reduce air pollution at the community level.
