The regulation requires diesel truck and bus owners to take
to reduce their engine emissions.  The regulation is a part of
the State's plan to meet federal ambient air quality standards
and to protect public health, particularly near roadways and
distribution centers where exposure frequently reaches unhealthy
levels.  Nearly all trucks and buses with a manufacturer's gross
vehicle weight rating greater than 14,000 pounds that operate in
California are required to be upgraded from 2012 to 2023 to
reduce exhaust emissions.  

Most heavier trucks and buses (with a gross vehicle weight
greater than 26,000 pounds) are required to have a particulate
matter filter by January 1, 2014.  There are certain exceptions
to these requirements for owners that have reported to use
flexibility options allowed under the regulation.  These
but are not limited to, certain agricultural and limited-use
construction trucks, low-use vehicles, and vehicles operated in
certain rural areas.
