OPR Submits Proposed Greenhouse Gas CEQA Guidelines to the Resources Agency and Starts the Rulemaking Clock

On April 13, 2009, the Governor's Office of Planning and Research (OPR) submitted to the California Secretary for Natural Resources proposed amendments to the CEQA Guidelines for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The proposed amendments seek to address GHG emissions on a small and large scale. The Resources Agency now has eight months to certify and adopt the Guidelines proposed by OPR in a formal rulemaking procedure. After the new Guidelines are adopted, they will affect how lead and responsible agencies analyze proposed development in California.
