omb -- Notices Released for a Public Meeting and Workshop to Consider Changes to the 2011 Carl Moyer Program Guidelines - May 2, 2014 Posted: 30 Apr 2014 08:53:13
The California Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) invites you to participate in two events on May 2, 2014, to discuss changes to the 2011 Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment (Carl Moyer) Program Guidelines (Guidelines). From 10:00am to 12:00pm, ARB will hold a public meeting to discuss proposed general changes to the 2011 Carl Moyer Program Guidelines. This meeting will be an opportunity for ARB staff to receive public comments on proposed Guideline changes, which are now available at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/moyer/moyer.htm ARB will also hold a public workshop on that date in the afternoon to discuss potential Guideline changes specific to on-road heavy-duty vehicles based on amendments to the Regulation to Reduce Emissions of Diesel Particulate Matter, Oxides of Nitrogen and Other Criteria Pollutants from In-Use Diesel-Fueled Vehicles (Truck and Bus Rule), which were approved by the Board at its April 2014 hearing. The workshop will be held from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. Staff intends to propose changes to the Guidelines at the Board’s July 2014 hearing. The meeting and workshop will be held at the following times and place: DATE: Friday, May 2, 2014 TIME: 10:00a.m. – 12:00p.m. (Public Meeting on Guideline changes) TIME: 1:00p.m. – 3:00p.m. (Public Workshop for on-road changes) PLACE: California Environmental Protection Agency Air Resources Board Byron Sher Auditorium 1001 I Street Sacramento, California 95814 The meetings will be webcast for those unable to attend in person. The broadcast can be accessed on the day of the meeting at http://www.calepa.ca.gov/broadcast/. Information on submitting questions or comments will be provided during the webcast for remote participants. The public notices for each event (Mailouts MSC 14-05 and MSC 14-06) are available at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/mailouts/mouts_14.htm BACKGROUND: Since 1998, the Carl Moyer Program has filled a critical niche in California’s strategy to achieve clean air. The Carl Moyer Program provides grant funding for the incremental cost of cleaner-than-required engines, equipment, and emission reduction technologies. The Carl Moyer Program complements California’s regulatory program by funding emission reductions that are surplus (i.e., early and/or in excess of what is required by regulation). State law authorizes Air Resources Board to revise the Carl Moyer Program Guidelines when necessary to improve the ability of the program to achieve its goals.
