hdghg -- Public Workshop Notice – AB 32 Heavy-Duty Vehicle Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction Measure Posted: 16 Jul 2008 13:27:49
The California Air Resources Board invites you to participate in a new series of workshops scheduled for late July and early August to discuss the proposed regulation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from long-haul tractors and trailers. The proposed regulation, which incorporates elements of the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay(SM) program, specifically applies to long-haul box-type trailers that are 53 feet in length or longer and heavy-duty tractors that pull these trailers. Under the current proposal, drivers, motor carriers, independent owner/operators, brokers, and California businesses that ship and/or receive freight will all share the responsibility for ensuring that affected tractors and trailers comply with this measure’s requirements. During the scheduled workshops, staff will discuss draft regulatory language (to be posted), regulatory costs and benefits, answer questions, and receive industry comments. Staff will also discuss how stakeholders will be affected by this regulation with specific focus on requirements applicable to trailer owners, brokers, California businesses that ship and/or receive freight in 53-foot box-type trailers, and others within the logistics industry.
