The Air Resources Board (ARB), in consultation with the Bureau of
Automotive Repair (BAR), will conduct a series of public
workshops to discuss and receive comments on the draft proposal
for modifying the State’s voluntary vehicle retirement program
for light-duty vehicles, referred to as EFMP. 


EFMP is a vehicle retirement and replacement program authorized
by Assembly Bill 118 (Nunez, Chapter 750, Statutes of 2007,
California Health and Safety Code Section 44125, amended 2010,
2013).  EFMP is funded by a $1 surcharge on motor vehicle
registration, translating into about $30 million every fiscal
year and has been administered by BAR since 2010. 

Recent legislation enacted by Senate Bill (SB) 459 (SB 459,
Chapter 437, Statutes of 2013 ) directs, among other items, that
ARB improve EFMP to increase the benefits of the program for
low-income California residents, promote cleaner replacement
vehicles, enhance emission reductions gained by the program, and
to increase outreach to community-based organizations.  Pursuant
to SB 459, ARB shall, in consultation with BAR, update the
program no later than June 30, 2015.  The draft proposal being
discussed is in response to both findings from the program review
and recent legislation. 

The workshop notice can be found on the EFMP website:
http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/aqip/efmp/efmp.htm.  The draft
proposal will be posted to the website prior to the workshops.

If you have questions regarding these proposed revisions, please
contact Mr. Aaron Hilliard, Air Resources Engineer, at (916)
322-4781 or via email at ahillar@arb.ca.gov.
