With ongoing economic concerns, many cities in California hope to see the California Air Resources Board (CARB) adjust regional greenhouse gas emissions targets. The regional greenhouse gas emission targets will force the development and implementation of plans at the regional and local level to reduce greenhouse gases emitted from vehicles. The League of California Cities is debating whether to ask lawmakers to consider legislation to suspend SB 375, the state’s climate change legislation requiring regional greenhouse gas emission reductions. As that scenario is unlikely, the League may soon ask CARB to establish the reduced targets based on the fact that local governments have few resources to devote to meeting the targets. Simultaneously, CARB is seeking data from local governments in order to inform its target setting decision, which is a key component of the state’s climate change program. Draft targets should be released in June and finalized by September.
