zev-program -- Alternatives for Analysis: ZEV Regulation Standardized Regulatory Impact Assessment

In response to the requirements of SB 617, ARB is welcoming
public input on alternatives to the existing requirements in the
Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Regulation, California Code of
Regulations, title 13, section 1962.1 (effective July 10, 2014)
pertaining to the designation of ZEVs as fast refueling capable
for model year 2015 through 2017 ZEVs.

The ZEV Regulation assigns credits on the basis of Urban
Dynamometer Driving Cycle (UDDS) ZEV range and fast refueling
capability. For 2015 through 2017 model year Type III, IV, and V
ZEVs, fast refueling capability is based on documented fast
refueling events. One vehicle may document up to 25 fast
refueling events for which credits will be applied to up to 25
vehicles earning fast refueling credits.

At the October 2014 Board Meeting, Board members expressed
concern about excessive credit generation and revenue associated
with credit sales from additional fast refueling events for a
single vehicle. The Board directed staff to reconsider these
provisions in the ZEV regulation and to reduce the number of fast
refueling events for which a single ZEV could receive credits.

Staff is proposing modifications in section 1962.1(d)(5)(B)1.b.
to limit one fast refueling event per vehicle towards earning
additional credits. The proposal will be presented in a public
workshop scheduled for the second quarter of 2015.

State rulemaking supports public input in this ongoing ARB
process aimed toward a ZEV regulatory proposal for Board
consideration in Fall 2015. As part of this process, ARB
encourages public input on alternative ZEV fast refueling
approaches, specifically any approach that may yield the same or
greater economic benefits than those associated with the proposed
amendments, or that may achieve the goals at lower cost.

To submit an alternative for ARB to analyze in its Standardized
Regulatory Impact Analysis (SRIA) under SB 617 (see
http://www.dof.ca.gov/research/economic_research_unit/SB617_regulation/view.php),
please ensure that your submission discusses the alternative's
ability to fulfill the purposes of the draft regulatory proposal
as ARB has presented it. To enable comparison of economic
impacts, please submit the associated cost and benefit
information with sources. Please also submit a clear description
of the basis for any cost calculations.

Alternatives may be submitted via email to Mr. Ryan Hart, Air
Resources Engineer, at ryan.hart@arb.ca.gov. ARB will consider
all alternatives provided in deciding which alternatives will be
carried forward for more detailed analysis as part of the
rulemaking process.

The deadline for submission of alternatives relating to economic
impacts is Friday, April 10, 2015.

arbcombo -- Prop.1B/Goods Movement Workshops Program Updates

Please mark your calendars for an upcoming series of public
workshops to discuss updates to the Proposition 1B: Goods
Movement Emission Reduction Program Guidelines for future
funding. The Guidelines define the responsibilities of the
State Air Resources Board (ARB), local agencies, and equipment
owners, as well as the technical specifications and funding
amounts for eligible projects.

We will hold three workshops during the week of April 27th, 2015
to discuss these concepts and your ideas. Please see the Program
website at www.arb.ca.gov/gmbond for the workshop details.

Background: California voters approved $1 billion in bond
funding under Proposition 1B in 2006. The Proposition 1B: Goods
Movement Emission Reduction Program is a partnership between the
ARB and local agencies (like air districts and ports) to reduce
air pollution emissions and health risk from freight movement
along California's trade corridors. ARB provides funding to
eligible agencies; those agencies then offer financial incentives
to owners of equipment used in freight movement to upgrade to
cleaner technologies prior to regulatory requirements.

If you have any questions, please call our Goods Movement
Information Line at:(916)44-GOODS (444-6637) or contact us via
email at gmbond@arb.ca.gov.
