2020 - Assembly Bill 1714 (Aguiar-Curry, Cecilia), Emissions Limitations for Wine Fermentation (Dead)
Would have required CARB to convene a working group with a specified membership for the purposes of reviewing the state of air pollution control technologies, operational or maintenance standards, and work practices that may be applied to wine fermentation tanks, and the costs and benefits of those technologies, standards, and practices. The bill would have required local air districts, when adopting a rule or issuing a permit requiring air pollution control technology to be installed on wine fermentation tanks, to include specified findings as part of that action. The bill would have required CARB to allocate $1 million, available upon appropriation by the Legislature, to the University of California Davis for a study that would make recommendations on options to address air emissions from wine fermentation tanks. Was not heard in the Senate Environmental Quality Committee.
