California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006: market-based compliance mechanisms.


The California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 designates the State Air Resources Board as the state agency charged with monitoring and regulating sources of emissions of greenhouse gases. The state board is required to adopt a statewide greenhouse gas emissions limit equivalent to the statewide greenhouse gas emissions level in 1990 to be achieved by 2020, and to adopt rules and regulations in an open public process to achieve the maximum technologically feasible and cost-effective greenhouse gas emission reductions. The state board is authorized to adopt market-based compliance mechanisms, as defined, meeting specified requirements to be used for compliance with those regulations. This bill would prohibit the state board from implementing a market-based compliance mechanism that includes caps on greenhouse gas emissions and trading among participants unless it is a part of a legally enforceable regional or federal program.
