Posted: 17 Sep 2008 12:42:31
A correction has been made to the DATE in the subject line of
this listserv announcement.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

Scoping Plan Supplemental Evaluations Background: 
ARB developed the Draft Scoping Plan in response to the Global
Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (AB 32).  AB 32 requires ARB to
“evaluate the total potential costs and total potential economic
and noneconomic benefits of the [Scoping Plan] to California’s
economic, environment and public health, using the best
available economic models, emission estimation techniques and
other scientific methods” (Health and Safety Code (HSC)

The Evaluation Supplements assess both the economic and public
health effects of the ARB’s June 26, 2008 Draft Scoping Plan. 
The Economic Analysis Supplement summarizes ARB’s evaluation of
the impact on California’s economy by implementing the measures
set out in the preliminary recommendations of the Draft Scoping
Plan.  ARB has also conducted a preliminary evaluation of the
potential public health benefits associated with the preliminary
recommendations in the Draft Scoping Plan.  The public health
analysis is focused primarily on the quantification of public
health benefits from air quality improvements that would result
from implementation of the Draft Scoping Plan.  In addition,
ARB’s Draft Scoping Plan Measure Documentation Supplement
contains a measure-by-measure summary of the assumptions and
calculations ARB used in developing GHG emission reductions,
costs, and savings for measures in the Scoping Plan and
associated appendices and supplemental evaluations.  

We are requesting comments on these Supplements as soon as
possible, recognizing that these comments will not be able to be
reflected in the October 3rd release of the Proposed Scoping
Plan.  The October 3rd Proposed Scoping Plan will contain an
economic and public health assessment of the final staff
recommendation and will be available for additional public

The Supplemental Evaluations are available on the ARB website at
