SACRAMENTO – The California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 establishes a statewide target for greenhouse gas reduction by 2020 and the Air Resources Board (ARB) is required to adopt a plan and individual measures to achieve the maximum technologically feasible and cost-effective reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. The ARB will hold two public workshops on the multiyear work plan for implementation and the strategy for developing the list of early action measures to comply with the Act's requirement that ARB identify and present a list of early action items by June 30, 2007. The event will be divided into two distinctive presentations as follows:
Date: Monday, January 22, 2007
Implementation Plan and Schedule, 9:30 am - 12:00 pm (Pacific Time)
Cal/EPA Headquarters Building, Byron Sher Auditorium, 1001 I Street, Sacramento, California 95814
During the morning workshop, staff will present an overall schedule, key milestones and ARB's approach for ensuring broad stakeholder involvement; and will discuss the timetables for the Public Utilities Commission and the California Energy Commission's related actions.
