About This Project

Geographic focus: statewide
Main activity: legislative and administrative efforts, state regulatory agencies

The Air Project covers statewide regulatory and legislative air quality issues (excluding climate change). The project works to ensure that state and federal air quality requirements are integrated in order to maximize consistency and minimize duplication of effort. CCEEB represents members at the California Air Resources Board and other state agencies, as well as at the legislature. The Air Project works to improve programs on the ground and to ensure that policies are successful under real-world conditions while still meeting environmental goals.

PROJECT UPDATES

CTR/AB 2588

CARB has proposed amendments to the AB 2588 Emission Inventory Criteria and Guidelines Regulation. CCEEB provided comments to and met several times with staff to provide input on rule language and development.

The amendments are to be considered for adoption during the November 2020 CARB Board meeting.

For more information on the AB 2588 Emission Inventory Criteria and Guidelines Regulation, visit: https://ww2.arb.ca.gov/our-work/programs/ab-2588-air-toxics-hot-spots

The next meeting with CARB staff to discuss reporting issues is November 5, 2020.

Advanced Clean Trucks and Zero-Emission Fleet Rules

On June 25, 2020 the CARB Board approved and adopted the Advanced Clean Truck (ACT) regulation, which will require truck manufacturers to transition from diesel trucks and vans to electric zero-emission trucks beginning in 2024. The goal is that by 2045 every new truck sold in California will be zero-emission.

This regulation is directly related to the Advanced Clean Fleet regulation: https://ww2.arb.ca.gov/our-work/programs/advanced-clean-fleets

CCEEB continues to engage in meetings with CARB staff as these regulations transition to rule language, guidance documents, and implementation.
