schoolbus -- Lower-Emission School Bus Program Mail-Out # MSC 12-18 – Revisions to Implementation Deadlines

Posted: 26 Sep 2012 13:39:41
The California Air Resources Board (ARB) has posted a Mail-Out
that incorporates implementation deadline adjustments into the
2008 Lower-Emission School Bus Program Guidelines (Guidelines). 
Mail-Out #MSC 12-15 incorporated recent statutory changes(Senate
Bill 1018, Chapter 39, Statutes of 2012) – including the
extension of the expenditure deadline for Lower-Emission School
Bus Program (LESBP) Proposition 1B (the Highway Safety, Traffic
Reduction, Air Quality, and Port Security Bond Act of 2006) funds
from June 30, 2012, to June 30, 2014 – into the Guidelines. 
Those statutory changes necessitate adjustments to the
implementation deadlines that were last adjusted in Mail-Out
#10-11.  Accordingly, the Guidelines now require two additional
years of semiannual reports; provide for a new bus delivery
deadline and for liquidated damages; specify what must be
accomplished by the expenditure deadline; and extend the records
submission due date for those air districts that chose to meet
the bond records retention requirement by submitting records to
the ARB. 

The Mail-Out may be found on ARB’s webpage at:

If you have questions regarding this Mail-Out, please contact Ms.
Kimya Lambert, Air Pollution Specialist, at (916) 323-2507 or via
email at klambert@arb.ca.gov .
The primary goal of the ARB's Lower-Emission School Bus Program
is to reduce school children's exposure to both cancer-causing
and smog-forming pollution. The program provides grant funding
for new, safer school buses and to put air pollution control
equipment (i.e., retrofit devices) on buses that are already on
the road.
