2022 - Assembly Bill 1322 (Rivas, Robert), California Global Warming Solutions Act Of 2006: Aviation Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Plan. (Vetoed)
Would have required CARB, by July 1, 2024, to develop a plan to reduce aviation greenhouse gas emissions, including a sustainable fuels target for the aviation sector of at least 20 percent by 2030. The bill would have required the plan to include strategies to increase adoption of sustainable aviation technologies, and incentive amounts necessary to encourage aircraft to use cleaner fuels. Finally, the bill would have required CARB, by July 1, 2024, upon appropriation by the Legislature, to implement the plan.
Governor’s Veto Message
To the Members of the California State Assembly:
I am returning Assembly Bill 1322 without my signature.
This bill requires the California Air Resources Board (CARB), on or before July 1, 2024, to develop a plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through the production and use of sustainable aviation fuels. This bill would also require CARB, on or before July 1, 2024, to commence implementation of the plan to achieve these goals.
While my Administration appreciates the intent of this bill, there are existing opportunities for credit generation from sustainable aviation fuel production under the state's Low Carbon Fuel Standard.
For these reasons, I cannot sign this bill.
