California Air Resources Board is Expected to Adopt the California Cap and Trade Program at today’s hearing.

According to the Air Resources Board, the Program:

  • Limits emissions from sources responsible for 85 percent of California’s Green House Gas emissions;
  • Establishes the price signal needed to drive long-term investment in cleaner fuels and more efficient use of energy; and
  • Affords covered entities flexibility to seek out and implement the lowest-cost options to reduce emissions.
