 Discussion Items
The following agenda items may be heard in a different order at the Board meeting.
 19-4-1:  Public Hearing to Consider Proposed Amendments to the Red Sticker Program for Off‑Highway Recreational Vehicles
 
The California Air Resources Board (CARB or Board) will consider amendments to the Red Sticker Program for Off-Highway Recreation Vehicles (OHRV). OHRV are primarily used in public State parks and federally designated lands, as well as on private tracks. The goal of the proposed amendments is to end the current red sticker program which allows for CARB certification of OHRV that do not meet emissions standards. The amendments include provisions that end the certification of new red sticker vehicles, end riding restrictions on public lands for existing red sticker vehicles, establish new OHRV emissions standards, and increase incentives for fleet emissions averaging and zero emission OHRV. The proposed amendments are intended to cause emissions reductions from OHRV in California while ensuring availability for California dealers and riders.
