Existing law, The California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 establishes the State Air Resources Board (ARB) as the state agency responsible for monitoring and regulating sources emitting greenhouse gases. The act authorizes the ARB to include the use of market-based compliance mechanisms. Pursuant to the act, the ARB has adopted the Low-Carbon Fuel Standard regulations.

This bill would state the intent of the Legislature to enact subsequent legislation relating to the Low-Carbon Fuel Standard regulations to create a credit-based accountability mechanism to enforce hydrogen refueling station reliability.
