SB 375 has passed through the California state legislature and is currently awaiting Governor Schwarzenegger’s signature. The bill, once signed, may play a key role in reducing California’s greenhouse gas emissions. The bill would require regional and local entities to establish community development plans designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from automobiles and light trucks by September 30, 2010. It would require all future development to be consistent with the community development plans and would require the emission reduction targets to be updated every 8 years. The bill would not mandate a particular level of emission reductions, though. Rather, the bill would allow the California State Air Resources Board to set an emission reduction requirement for each region or locality.
