The Assembly Appropriations Committee approved 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.
   

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 Appropriations Committee. Having already been approved by the Transportation Committee, the bill will now be considered in a vote by all assembly members. 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 2016–2017 fiscal year, the bill would require the agencies to set specific and measurable goals for the program’s expansion.
