The Incentive Programs Advisory Group Meeting, scheduled for December 3, 2009, is being postponed until early 2010. We will send out a meeting notice once we select a revised meeting date. The meeting is being rescheduled to better align with upcoming revisions to both the Carl Moyer Program Guidelines and the Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program Guidelines.
These proposed guideline updates will be considered by CARB in March 2010. CARB believes the next Advisory Group meeting will be most productive if it is held after CARB staff has held workshops on its proposals but before Board consideration.
The Incentive Programs Advisory Group, led by ARB Board Member Sandra Berg, provides a forum for discussing policy level issues relating to the development and ongoing implementation of California’s air quality incentive programs. These include the Carl Moyer Program, the Lower-Emission School Bus Program, the Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program, the AB 118 programs, and other locally run air district programs, among others. The group meets twice a year to provide a venue for policy level coordination among agencies and programs.
