2023 – Senate Bill 709 (Allen, Ben), Low-Carbon Fuel Standard regulations: biogas derived from livestock manure (Dead)
Would have eliminated the requirement for CARB to credit dairy methane projects for a minimum of 10 years and prohibited
CARB from guaranteeing those credits if they would not otherwise generate credits in the program. The bill also would have required CARB to include new specific emissions when calculating a carbon intensity value for dairy methane projects, limited credit generation to historical herd size, and required public disclosure of specified information in fuel pathway applications from dairy methane projects. Held on suspense in the Senate Appropriations Committee.
