CARB Moves Forward with Supplement to AB 32 Scoping Plan

As readers may be aware, in May 2011, Judge Goldsmith of the San Francisco County Superior Court (Association of Irritated Residents, et al. v. California Air Resources Board, et al., Case No. CPF-09-509562) found that the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) analysis of project alternatives in its AB 32 Scoping Plan was not sufficient under CEQA. Although CARB appealed the decision, CARB staff nevertheless prepared a Supplement to the Scoping Plan that attempts to address the Court’s concerns, and is now receiving public comment on the Supplement. The public comment period closes on July 28, 2011; the Board is scheduled to consider approval of the Supplement on August 24, 2011.
