arbcombo -- Community Workshops for Advanced Clean Cars Regulations Posted: 24 Jun 2011 15:38:27
The California Air Resources Board would like to invite you to join staff and invited panelists to learn more about the health and economic impacts of air pollution and climate change and what the ARB is doing to reduce these emissions from the largest single source -- passenger cars and trucks. This fall, the ARB will propose a suite of regulations affecting new cars sold between 2018 and 2025 to help meet those goals. Called ‘Advanced Clean Cars’, these regulations will significantly reduce greenhouse gas and smog emissions from California’s cars and trucks, will accelerate the numbers of plug-in hybrids and zero-emission vehicles on the roads in California, and will ensure that fuels such as electricity and hydrogen are available for these new vehicle technologies. California needs clean and efficient vehicles to meet its health and climate change goals. We are holding three evening workshops throughout the state to hear your input as we develop the Advanced Clean Car regulations. In addition, ARB is preparing an environmental analysis (known as a Functional Equivalent Document, or FED) as required under the California Environmental Quality Act. This analysis will identify potentially significant environmental impacts of the proposed Advanced Clean Cars regulations, and feasible mitigation for such impacts. These meetings will also serve as scoping meetings for the FED, to receive input as to what elements you consider important for inclusion in the environmental analysis. Background: Despite progress in addressing the state’s stubborn air pollution problems, 90 percent of Californians still live in areas with unhealthy air. Climate change will exacerbate air pollution, and its impacts are already being felt in some areas. The State of California has committed to protect public health, the economy, and the environment through policies that address air pollution and climate change, and the ARB is charged with implementing these policies.
