arbcombo -- May 5, 2014 Sustainable Freight Strategy Public Forum

On May 5, 2014, the California Air Resources Board (ARB or Board)
will hold a public forum for the development of the Sustainable
Freight Strategy (Strategy). The purpose of this dialogue is to
provide an opportunity for open, interactive discussions with
staff and between attendees. Materials, including an agenda,
will be posted on the Sustainable Freight Transport Initiative
website at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/gmp/sfti/sfti.htm no later
than May 1, 2014.

The forum will be held at the following time and place:

Date: Monday, May 5, 2014
Time: 10:00 am to 3:00 pm
Place: Cal/EPA Headquarters Building
Coastal and Sierra Hearing Rooms, 2nd Floor
1001 I Street
Sacramento, California 95814

Background

California's freight transportation system is a multi-modal
system designed to move freight across the State, the nation, and
the globe. The freight system is a critical part of our economy
and a significant contributor to our air quality concerns. The
collective efforts of impacted communities, the logistics
industry, air quality agencies, and the ports have yielded
significant progress in reducing the air pollution impacts from
the movement of freight or goods.

On January 23, 2014, the Board adopted resolution 14-2, which
directed staff to engage all interested stakeholders to provide
input on the development of a Strategy document by the end of
2014. The purpose of the Strategy is to identify and prioritize
actions that move California towards a sustainable freight
transport system that is characterized by improved efficiency and
zero or near-zero emissions.

If you have questions regarding the forum, please contact Ms. Lea
Yamashita, Air Pollution Specialist, at (916) 323-0017 or
lyamashi@arb.ca.gov.

This notice is being sent to a large number of email groups. If
you would like to continue to receive notices regarding the
Sustainable Freight Strategy, please sign up for the listserv at

arbcombo -- Notice of Public Meeting to Consider Approval of the 2014 Progress Report for the California Regional Haze Mid-Course Review

The Air Resources Board will conduct a public meeting at the time
and place noted below to consider approval of the California
Regional Haze Plan 2014 Progress Report for submittal to the
United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S.EPA.)

DATE: May 22, 2014

TIME: 9:00 a.m.

PLACE: California Environmental Protection Agency
Air Resources Board
Byron Sher Auditorium
1001 I Street
Sacramento, California 95814

Directions: http://www.calepa.ca.gov/EPABldg/location.htm

To provide your comments before the Board meeting and to view the
Notice, please go to:
http://www.arb.ca.gov/lispub/comm/bclist.php

The report may be obtained from ARB's website at:
http://www.arb.ca.gov/planning/reghaze/reghaze.htm

Further inquiries regarding this matter should be directed to Mr.
Webster Tasat, Section Manager, (916) 323-4950, or Ms. Tina
Suarez-Murias, Air Pollution Specialist, (916) 323-1495.

Under the Clean Air Act, the nationwide program to improve
visibility requires every state to reduce regional haze to
natural conditions by 2064, at specific national parks and
wilderness areas identified as Class 1 Areas. ARB adopted the
California Regional Haze Plan (Plan) in 2009, setting interim
visibility goals for 2018 at Class 1 Areas in California. For
the mid-course review, every state must prepare a progress
report, five years after submitting their plan to the U.S. EPA.
Progress reports assess visibility improvements and emissions
reductions achieved through plans, to determine if immediate
revisions are necessary to meet the 2018 goals. This 2014
Progress Report demonstrates that visibility at California's
Class 1 Areas improved measurably under the current control
strategy, and finds that immediate revisions are not needed
before the next scheduled Plan revision in 2018.
