 Public Meeting to Provide an Informational Update on the Zero Emission Vehicle Regulation Revisions
 
 Motion and Vote
 
Staff will update the Board on the development of Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) technologies, the role these technologies may play in achieving the State’s 2050 greenhouse gas emission goal, how the ZEV regulation could be modified to help achieve this goal, and what other policies may be beneficial or necessary to assure adequate and timely fueling infrastructure and to incentivize consumers to buy ZEVs.  This is an informational item and no regulatory action will be taken at this time.  A regulatory update of the ZEV program is planned in late 2010.
