      Air Resources Board (ARB) Public Workshop on California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (AB32)

      Date: January 16, 2008 Time: 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

      Address: Metropolitan Transportation Commission

      Location: Auditorium 101 Eighth Street Oakland, CA 94607


      The Air Resources Board (ARB) staff invites you to participate in a public workshop to discuss potential policy mechanisms for emission reductions that are being considered for inclusion in the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Scoping Plan (Plan) required by the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, also known as Assembly Bill 32 (AB 32).

      This workshop will discuss the process that ARB will use in evaluating policy mechanisms for achieving the GHG emission reductions called for in AB 32. The mechanisms under consideration include direct emission reduction measures, alternative compliance mechanisms, market-based compliance mechanisms, potential monetary and non-monetary incentives, and voluntary reductions for various sources and categories of sources. ARB is seeking input into the range of mechanisms being considered for inclusion as part of the overall AB 32 program, and the process ARB will use in evaluating the options for inclusion in the Plan.

      The workshop is open to all interested parties. It will be held at the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) in Oakland and will also be webcast.

      Directions to MTC can be found at:

      Workshop materials and the agenda will be posted prior to the meeting at ARB's Scoping Plan website at http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/scopingplan/scopingplan.htm

      In a continuing effort to reduce our carbon footprint, the ARB is trying to minimize its paper use. Electronic copies of the slide presentations will be available on the climate change website prior to the workshop at http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/cc.htm

      If you download the presentations to your laptop please refrain from taking a paper copy at the workshop. We welcome and encourage your participation in this important effort.
