Air Resources Board Chairman looks forward to regional approach
to proposed U.S. EPA power plant rules

New federal plan benefits from California’s experience

Sacramento — Air Resources Board Chairman Mary D. Nichols today
issued the following statement concerning today’s release of
proposed U.S. EPA power plant regulations:


“The proposed rules bring some of the same economic and
environmental benefits California has enjoyed from improved
energy efficiency and cleaner low-carbon energy to the rest of
the country,” said Chairman Nichols.

“We are committed to building on our successful programs to reach
and exceed the federal targets. We look forward to working with
other states, including Oregon and Washington, in a regional
approach to take action to cut carbon pollution and promote the
cleanest sources of energy.”


California’s AB 32 greenhouse gas emission reduction programs
cover most sectors of the state’s economy, with the goal of
lowering those emissions to 1990 levels by 2020. The recently
released AB 32 Scoping Plan examines how the state can continue
to reduce emissions beyond that date, with a 2050 target of an
additional 80 percent reduction by 2050.
