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
California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA) Byron Sher
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.
