Re: Public Workshop to Discuss Implementing the Heavy-Duty Engine Incentive Program

Dear Sir/Madam:

The staff of the Air Resources Board (ARB) will be holding a public workshop to discuss implementation of a heavy-duty engine incentive program. Governor Wilson and the legislature have authorized $25 million to fund the program, called the Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program. The incentives are grants that would cover the differential cost of cleaner on-road, off-road, marine, and locomotive engines.

At the workshop we will discuss project requirements, how local air districts and port authorities can request funds to establish a local program, and other issues. Based on the input we receive at the workshop, staff will be developing proposed guidelines for program implementation. The proposed guidelines will be considered by our Board at a public hearing in February 1999.

The workshop will be held at the following date, time, and location:

Thursday, November 12, 1998

9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

California Air Resources Board

9530 Telstar Avenue - Annex 4

El Monte, California

Attached is a staff discussion paper, which includes background information and a basic description of the program. At the workshop, we plan on discussing basic program issues in the morning, and focusing on specific project categories in the afternoon. If you have any questions or comments regarding this program, please contact Ms. Renee Kemena, Air Resources Engineer, Regulatory Strategy Section, at (916) 322-6921, or at rkemena@arb.ca.gov by e-mail.
