LIVE: MEMBERS OF CALIFORNIA'S BUSINESS COMMUNITY ARE ASKING STATE AIR REGULATORS TO USE VOLUNTARY RATHER THAN MANDATED APPROACHES TO REDUCING GREENHOUSE GASES. THOSE ORGANIZATIONS TESTIFIED TODAY DURING A HEARING BY STAFF OF THE CALIFORNIA AIR RESOURCES BOARD.

SUPER: TODAY/CALIFORNIA ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY BUILDING/SACRAMENTO

VO: (:20)

THE HEARING THIS AFTERNOON IS FOCUSING ON EARLY ACTIONS THAT CAN BE TAKEN FOR BUSINESSES AND INDIVIDUALS TO REDUCE GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS 25 PERCENT BY 2020. THAT WILL BE REQUIRED BY THE HIGHLY PUBLICIZED LEGISLATION SIGNED LAST YEAR BY THE GOVERNOR THAT GARNERED INTERNATIONAL ATTENTION.

SUPER: DOMINIC DI MARE/CO-CHAIR/AB-32 IMPLEMENTATION GROUP

SOT: (33:41-:21)(:38)

SAYS: "COMPANIES THAT MAKE THE INVESTMENTS TODAY AREN'T CERTAIN THAT THOSE INVESTMENTS WILL BE RESPECTED AND RECOGNIZED AS REDUCTION TECHNOLOGIES BY THE A-R-B OR IN THE WORST CASE FOR SOME WOULD BECOME MANDATES, AND WHEN YOU MAKE ADOPTION OF NEW TECHNOLOGY YOU LOSE THE VALUE IN A TRADING SCHEME AGAIN, A LOT OF THAT IS PREDICATED ON HAVING A CARBON MARKET DEVELOPED OVER THE LONG TERM."

VO TAG:

SOME OF THE ISSUES BEING DISCUSSED TODAY ARE TIRE PRESSURE AND THAT AUTOMOBILES ARE CHECKED FOR CORRECT PRESSURE DURING ROUTINE MAINTENANCE TO ENSURE THEY ARE AT THE CORRECT PRESSURE TO MAXIMIZE VEHICLE EFFICIENCY AND REDUCE CARBON EMISSIONS.

EXTRA BITES:

SUPER: DOMINIC DI MARE/CO-CHAIR/AB-32 IMPLEMENTATION GROUP

SOT: (:12)

SAYS: "THE IDEA WOULD BE THAT INVESTMENTS MADE NOW COULD COUNT TOWARD SOME SORT OF CARBON TRADING SCHEME IN THE FUTURE, THOSE DETAILS HAVEN'T BEEN WORKED OUT YET BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO US IS JUST GETTING PEOPLE TO MAKE THE INVESTMENTS TODAY SO WE CAN REDUCE CARBON AND GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS SOONER RATHER THAN LATER."

SUPER: LEO KAY/CALIFORNIA AIR RESOURCES BOARD

SOT: (:31)

SAYS: "WELL, IT'S GONNA BE A MIXED BAG ULTIMATELY. THE SIX PROPOSED MEASURES ALONG WITH OTHERS ARE GOING TO BE SUBJECT TO STATE REGULATION BY JANUARY 1, 2010. THAT MEANS WE'LL HAVE ENFORCEABLE REGULATIONS, IN OTHER WORDS IF WE HAVE REQUIREMENTS OF A CERTAIN SEGMENT OF INDUSTRY AND THEY'RE NOT COMPLYING WE CAN FINE THEM."

SOT: (02:49-03:10)(:22)

SAYS: "THE EARLY MEASURES WE'RE PUTTING FORTH THAT ARE GOING TO CREATE AN ECONOMIC HARDSHIP AND SECURE US THE TONNAGE THAT WE NEED TO REDUCE OUR GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS 25 PERCENT BY 2020."

SOT: (:22)

SAYS: "ONE OF THE THINGS WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TODAY IS WHEN YOU TAKE YOUR CAR FOR A TUNE UP, INCUMBENT ON THE COMPANY TO MAKE SURE TIRES ARE PROPERLY INFLATED."
