At the June 23, 2016 Board meeting, the Board approved the
proposed FY 2016 17 Funding Plan which describes how ARB would
spend $500 million in proposed Low Carbon Transportation and
Fuels funding from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund and $28.6
million for Air Quality Improvement Program (AQIP). At the time
of the Board's action, the Legislature had appropriated AQIP
funds to ARB as part of the Budget Act of 2016 but had deferred
action on the $500 million in Low Carbon Transportation and Fuels
funding. Hence, the Low Carbon Transportation and Fuels elements
of the Board-approved Funding Plan were contingent on
appropriation of these funds. The Funding Plan included
contingency provisions to address this budget uncertainty
including direction that staff return with modifications to the
plan in the event that the Legislature appropriated less than
$400 million to ARB.
On August 31, 2016, the Legislature appropriated $363 million to
ARB for Low Carbon Transportation projects and provided direction
on how these funds are used. The Legislature also approved an
associated budget trailer bill which directs ARB to make a
changes to the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project. Staff is proposing
modifications to the FY 2016-17 Funding Plan to address the
smaller budget appropriation and additional direction from the
Legislature. These changes are fully described in the meeting
California is in a drought emergency.
