2023 – Senate Bill 670 (Allen, Ben), State Air Resources Board: vehicle miles traveled: maps (Dead)
Would have required CARB in consultation with the California Office of Planning and Research and the California Department of Transportation, to develop a methodology for assessing and spatially representing vehicle miles traveled (VMT) and develop maps to display average VMT per capita in the state at the local, regional, and statewide level. This bill also would have required the CARB to work with local agencies to assess whether regional maps of average VMT created by local agencies could be incorporated into the CARB maps, as specified. Would have required CARB to adopt the VMT methodology by January 1, 2025, publish the maps within 6 months, update both at least once every 4 years, and make both available on CARB's website. Held on suspense in the Senate Appropriations Committee.
