Legislation to require the Air Resources Board to expand the state’s program for the retirement and replacement of older passenger vehicles and light- and medium-duty trucks was approved by the Assembly Transportation Committee. Current law provides for “an enhanced fleet modernization program” to be administered by the Bureau of Automotive Repair based on guidelines adopted by the Air Resources Board. Beginning in the 2016–17 fiscal year, the bill would require the agencies to set specific and measurable goals for the program’s expansion. The bill will next be considered by the Appropriations Committee.
