AB 179 California Air Resources Board and California Transportation Commission Joint Meetings

Assembly Bill 179 (AB 179) directs the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and California Transportation Commission (CTC) meet at least twice a year to coordinate implementation of transportation programs and policies.

Meeting Purpose

The purpose of the joint meetings is to coordinate on CARB and CTC programs and policies that have a nexus to achieving California’s transportation and air quality goals. Joint meetings will allow for a better understanding by CARB, CTC, and the public of the connections between CARB and CTC transportation programs, policies, and goals. These include, but are not limited to, the Sustainable Freight Action Plan, Zero-Emission Vehicle Action Plan, California Transportation Plan, State Implementation Plan, Climate Change Scoping Plan, and SB 375 regional targets. Ultimately, the continued, meaningful coordination between CARB, CTC, other State and local transportation agencies, and the public through this joint meeting process will help support meeting air quality, climate, and equity goals in addition to the State’s most critical transportation needs. We are structuring the joint meetings to allow for robust discussions between Board members and Commissioners about topics of mutual interest in transportation.

Meeting Information

CARB and CTC will hold at least two meetings per calendar year in various locations across the State. Information for the first two joint meetings is provided below. These meetings are separate from our regular Board meetings but will be coordinated to occur immediately before or after a Board or Commission meeting to the extent feasible. Agendas will be available at least 10 days prior to the meeting.
