The Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) announces the release of
the final version of the proposed First Update to the Climate
Change Scoping Plan (First Update), staff's written responses to
comments received on the Draft Environmental Analysis (EA) and
the Final EA. 

The First Update released today includes additional clarification
and edits to reflect comments received by ARB over the past
several months.

The First Update will be presented to the Board on May 22, 2014
for consideration for approval, along with the finalized
environmental documents.  The notice of public hearing can be
accessed at:


In February 2014, ARB released the Proposed First Update and held
a Board meeting discussion that included opportunities for
stakeholder feedback and public comment.  In March, ARB released
the Appendix F  Draft Environmental Analysis, 45-day review
public notice, Appendix B - Status of Scoping Plan Measures, and
Appendix C - Focus Group Working Papers. 

What is the First Update to the AB 32 Scoping Plan?

As required by AB 32, ARB developed the initial Scoping Plan in
2008.  AB 32 requires the scoping plan to be updated at least
every five years.  The First Update builds upon the initial
Scoping Plan with new strategies and recommendations.  The First
Update defines ARB's climate change priorities for the next five
years and lays the groundwork to start the transition to achieve
California's longer-term climate goals.  It highlights
California's progress toward meeting the near-term 2020 GHG
emission reduction goals defined in the initial Scoping Plan and
evaluates how to align the State's longer-term GHG reduction
strategies with other State policy priorities, for water, waste,
natural resources, agriculture, clean energy, transportation and
land use.
