Workshop to Discuss Possible Revisions to the Cap-and-Trade Regulation

California Air Resources Board (CARB or Board) staff invites you to participate in a public workshop on Thursday, June 21, 2018, to discuss the status and staff thinking on potential amendments to the Cap-and-Trade Regulation (Regulation).

DATE:                June 21, 2018
TIME:                 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
LOCATION:       California Environmental Protection Agency
                          Air Resources Board | Coastal Hearing Room
                          1001 I Street Sacramento, California 95814


Purpose of Workshop

This workshop is the next step in the informal public process to develop potential amendments to the Cap-and-Trade Regulation.  Staff invites stakeholders to participate in the workshop to discuss potential changes to the Regulation based on Board Resolution 17-21; AB 398, which provides specific direction for the design of a post-2020 Cap-and-Trade Program; and the need for clarification or other improvements.  This workshop will serve as a follow up to three previous workshops, and will continue the discussion of possible amendment topics.  The workshop will also cover topics presented in the new materials that will be released prior to the event, and staff will provide updates on planned regulatory process and tentative schedules.

Following the workshop, stakeholders will have an opportunity to provide written comments during an informal comment period, which will conclude at 5:00 p.m. Pacific time on Thursday, July 5, 2018.

Materials that will be discussed at the workshop will be available at 12:00 p.m. (noon) Pacific time on June 19, 2018. 


All interested stakeholders are invited to attend.  A live webcast of the workshop will be available for those unable to attend in person.
