AB 1493 in action

As promised, CARB is coming out with a draft of its proposed regulations on AB 1493. Danny Hakim reports.

I have been following this for over a year and a half now, and believe that this is going to be very important. The form of the standard is likely to be in terms of emissions of carbon-dioxide per mile driven. This may look different from the fuel economy standards, but it is not. There will be a lot of legal talk over this in the next year or so. AB 1493, even though well intentioned, may not be successful because it prohibits all demand side measures. Yet, we need to encourage California's efforts.
