materials to diesel vehicle owners affected by ARB truck
regulations. These regulations include the Truck and Bus
Regulation, the Tractor-Trailer Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Regulation
and other in-use diesel regulations.

California State Contracts Register at:

On December 11, 2008, the Board approved for adoption the Truck
and Bus Regulation and the Tractor-Trailer Greenhouse Gas
Regulation to control emissions from nearly all existing diesel
powered heavy-duty trucks and buses operating in California. 
These regulations became effective under California law in
January 2010.

Reducing emissions from in-use trucks and buses is necessary to
meet federally imposed clean air standards and to reduce the
adverse health effects from truck and bus pollution. The Truck
and Bus Regulation applies to diesel fueled trucks and buses with
a gross vehicle weight rating greater than 14,000 pounds that are
privately owned, federally owned, and to publicly and privately
owned school buses. Local and state government owned diesel
fueled trucks and buses are already subject to other ARB in-use
regulations. On December 17, 2010, the staff recommended
amendments that would delay the initial requirement to install
particulate matter (PM) retrofit filters by one year to January
1, 2012 and extended the time that vehicles would comply with PM
filters installed. The amendments would also defer engine
replacements for two years until January 1, 2015. Prior to 2020,
replacements would be limited to 20 year old or older trucks that
are not equipped with PM filters.  By January 1, 2023, most
vehicles would still need to have 2010 model year engines or

The California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (AB 32)
established requirements to achieve reductions of GHG emissions.
AB 32 requires the Air Resources Board and other state agencies
to adopt regulations and other requirements that would reduce
statewide GHG emission levels to the equivalent of 1990 levels by
2020. The Tractor-Trailer GHG rulemaking is one of 44 early
action measures identified by the Board.
