The California Cap-and-Trade Regulation (Regulation) was formally
adopted by the Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) in 2011.  In
2012, the Board adopted a limited set of amendments focused on
implementation of the Regulation.  In response to Board direction
and further discussions with stakeholders, staff began a public
process this spring to propose additional amendments for Board
consideration in fall 2013.  These workshops continue the
discussion of topics that staff will consider for new amendments.

More information on the Cap-and Trade Program may be found on the
Program website:
