AB 1322 (R. Rivas) A bill that requires the Air Resources Board to develop a plan to expand use of so-called “sustainable” aviation fuels. STATUS: APPROVED in both houses August 31; Vetoed by the Governor 9/30/22. Veto statement:
To the Members of the California State Assembly:
I am returning Assembly Bill 1322 without my signature.
This bill requires the California Air Resources Board (CARB), on or before July 1, 2024, to develop a plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through the production and use of sustainable aviation fuels. This bill would also require CARB, on or before July 1, 2024, to commence implementation of the plan to achieve these goals.
While my Administration appreciates the intent of this bill, there are existing opportunities for credit generation from sustainable aviation fuel production under the state’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard.
For these reasons, I cannot sign this bill.
