arbcombo -- State To Host Updated AB 32 Scoping Plan Workshop-2030 Scoping Plan Furthers California’s Commitment To Curb Emissions Posted: 11 Sep 2015 16:03:49
SACRAMENTO—The California Environmental Protection Agency, California State Transportation Agency, California Energy Commission, California Public Utilities Commission, California Natural Resources Agency, California Department of Food and Agriculture, Air Resources Board, and Governor’s Office of Planning and Research are hosting a community workshop on October 1, 2015 to continue moving forward with the updated AB 32 Scoping Plan, which reflects California’s new goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030, as directed in Executive Order B-30-15. The meeting is open to the public and full participation by all parties is encouraged: Date: Thursday, October 1, 2015 Time: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm Location: California Secretary of State Building (Main Office) Auditorium 1500 11th I Street Sacramento, California 95814 The meeting will build on the recent Governor’s Climate Change Pillars symposia, to seek public input on the strategies for achieving the reduction mandate. The 2030 Scoping Plan will also help expand on the post-2020 GHG reductions outlined in the First Update to the Climate Change Scoping Plan. Directions to the California Secretary of State Main Office building can be found at: http://www.sos.ca.gov/business-programs/driving-directions-sacramento/ . Background In 2006, the Legislature passed the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (Assembly Bill 32 [AB 32]; Stats. 2006, chapter 488). AB 32 created a comprehensive, multi-year program to reduce GHG emissions in California. AB 32 required ARB to develop and approve a Scoping Plan that describes the approach the State will take to reduce GHGs to achieve the goal of reducing emissions to 1990 levels by 2020. The Scoping Plan was first approved by the Board in 2008 and, per AB 32, must be updated every five years to evaluate the mix of AB 32 policies to ensure that California is on track to achieve the 2020 GHG reduction goal. The 2013 First Update to the Climate Change Scoping Plan defined ARB’s climate change priorities for the next five years and laid the groundwork to start the transition to the post-2020 goals set forth in Executive Orders S-3-05 and B-16-2012. The 2013 Update also recommended the need for a 2030 mid-term target to establish a continuum of action to reduce emissions, not just for stated limits in 2020 or 2050, but also every year in between. The 40 percent below 1990 levels mid-term target set by Executive Order B-30-15 is critical to help frame the additional suite of policy measures, regulations, planning efforts, and investments in clean technologies and infrastructure needed to continue driving down emissions. Workshop Materials An agenda and presentation material will be made available prior to the public meeting.
