arbcombo -- Release of LCFS Supplemental Regulatory Advisory 10-04B Posted: 30 Dec 2011 14:30:27
On December 29, 2011, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California issued several rulings in the federal lawsuits challenging the low carbon fuel standard (LCFS). One of the courtís rulings preliminarily enjoins the Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) from enforcing the regulation during the pendency of the litigation. While ARB intends to appeal these rulings and to seek an order staying the preliminary injunction, as long as the injunction remains in effect, ARB will respect the Courtís ruling and withhold enforcement of the LCFS requirements, including enforcement of the requirements described in this supplemental regulatory advisory. In seeking a stay of the preliminary injunction, ARB will request an order that all requirements of the LCFS in 2011 and 2012 are enforceable for the entire period. Thus, to the extent that existing guidance issued by ARB is expiring or stakeholders or the Board has requested modifications to the regulation, ARB will continue its stakeholder and rulemaking processes. This includes the issuance of this advisory to provide guidance in response to stakeholder requests. Today the ARB is issuing Supplemental Regulatory Advisory 10-04B (Supplemental Advisory 10 04B), which goes into effect January 1, 2012, to provide further guidance to stakeholders on the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) regulation. This Supplemental Advisory 10-04B further elaborates on the guidance provided in Supplemental Advisory 10 04A. This Supplemental Advisory 10-04B will remain in effect through December 31, 2012, unless superseded by a subsequent ARB advisory, notice, or rulemaking. Supplemental Regulatory Advisory 10-04B may be found at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/fuels/lcfs/123111lcfs-rep-adv.pdf.

The Low Carbon Fuel Standard, a regulation to reduce the carbon intensity of fuels sold in California ten percent by 2020, is one of the measures adopted by the California Air Resources Board, pursuant to Health and Safety Code Sections 38500-38599 (AB 32) to reduce greenhouse gases in California. It is designed to help clean the air, protect the environment, and drive the development of clean, low-carbon fuels to improve California's energy security and energy independence.
