The Federal Clean Air Act requires that all California air
quality regulations more stringent than the federal standards
must have a waiver granting authority. Wednesday's hearing will
consider public testimony on ARB's waiver request to reduce
greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles. The regulation requires
that emissions be reduced by 30 percent by 2016. The rule will
begin with the 2009 model year vehicles. ARB argues that the
technology already exists and is being used in various other
vehicle applications and the auto industry should integrate this
technology specifically to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Wednesday's hearing will allow the public and stakeholders to
voice concerns as the Federal EPA deliberates its decision.

The Air Resources Board is a department of the California
Environmental Protection Agency. ARB's mission is to promote and
protect public health, welfare, and ecological resources through
effective reduction of air pollutants while recognizing and
considering effects on the economy. The ARB oversees all air
pollution control efforts in California to attain and maintain
health based air quality standards.
