           DIGEST  :    This bill enacts the Global Warming Solutions  
          Act of 2006.

           ANALYSIS  :    

          Existing law:


                                                                 AB 32

          1. Provides for the California Climate Action Registry and  
             the voluntary reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG)  
             emissions to establish baselines against which future  
             GHG emission reduction requirements may be applied.  [SB  
             1771 (Sher), Chapter 1018, Statutes of 2000 and SB 527  
             (Sher), Chapter 769, Statutes of 2001.]

          2. Requires the Air Resources Board (ARB) to regulate GHG  
             emissions emitted by passenger vehicles and light-duty  
             trucks to achieve maximum feasible reductions [AB 1493  
             (Pavley), Chapter 200, Statutes of 2002].

          3. Requires ARB to develop regulations to prevent diesel  
             truck engine idling at ports pursuant to AB 2650  
             (Lowenthal), Chapter 1129, Statutes of 2002.

          4. Requires the state's retail sellers of electricity to  
             achieve at least 20 percent of energy sales from  
             renewable sources, pursuant to SB 1078 (Sher), Chapter  
             516, Statutes of 2002

          5. Requires the California Energy Commission (CEC) to  
             develop and adopt by June 30, 2007, a state plan to  
             increase the use of alternative transportation fuels to  
             achieve multiple objectives, including the reduction of  
             GHG emissions, pursuant to AB 1007 (Pavley), Chapter  
             371, Statutes of 2005.

          This bill:

          1. Requires ARB, on or before January 1, 2008, to adopt  
             regulations requiring GHG emission sources to monitor  
             and report their emissions to the ARB, and specifies  
             detailed criteria for the adoption and compliance with  
             those regulations.

          2. Requires ARB, on or before January 1, 2008, to adopt a  
             statewide emissions limit on GHG emissions, specifies  
             both a process and criteria for the adoption of the  
             limit, and provides that the limit shall remain in  
             effect after 2020 until otherwise amended or repealed.  

          3. Requires ARB to adopt the maximum feasible and  


                                                                 AB 32

             cost-effective reductions in GHG emissions for sources  
             and categories of sources subject to the Act, in  
             accordance with the following schedule:

             A.    On or before July 1, 2007, ARB shall adopt a list  
                of those discrete early action emission reduction  
                measures that can be achieved prior to the adoption  
                of market based compliance mechanisms and other  
                measures and limits under the bill's provisions.

             B.    On or before January 1, 2010, ARB shall adopt and  
                enforce those measures on the list described above in  
                order to achieve the maximum technologically feasible  
                and cost-effective reductions of GHGs.

             C.    On or before January 1, 2009, ARB shall prepare  
                and adopt a rulemaking scoping plan for the rules and  
                regulations it is required to adopt pursuant to the  
                bill's provisions, and shall comply with specified  
                criteria in developing and adopting the plan.  ARB  
                further is required to update the plan every five  

             D.    On or before January 1, 2011, ARB shall adopt GHG  
                emission limits and measures to achieve the maximum  
                feasible and cost-effective reductions in GHG  
                emissions in furtherance of the GHG emission limit.

             E.    In adopting the regulations described in #3D, ARB  
                may adopt a so-called "cap and trade" system (i.e. "a  
                system of market-based declining annual aggregate  
                emission limits" as described in the bill), provided  
                it complies with specified conditions prior to  
                authorizing the use of those mechanisms.

             F.    In adopting the regulations described in #3D  
                above, ARB may adopt market-based compliance  
                mechanisms and specifies conditions and criteria for  
                the adoption and use of those mechanisms. 

             G.    In adopting regulations, requires ARB to take into  
                account environmental justice, equitable distribution  
                of emission reductions, best available scientific and  
                economic information, and other factors.


                                                                 AB 32

             H.    Provides that ARB shall consult with various other  
                state agencies that have jurisdiction over utilities  
                and other sources of GHG emissions in order to  
                minimize any overlap among those agencies.

          4. Authorizes ARB to impose administrative, civil, and/or  
             criminal penalties consistent with its authority under  
             air quality statutes for violations of any rule,  
             regulation, order, or standard adopted by ARB pursuant  
             to the bill's provisions.

          5. Authorizes the Governor to adjust applicable deadlines  
             for individual regulations, or for the state in  
             aggregate, to the earliest feasible date in the event of  
             extraordinary circumstances, catastrophic events, or  
             significant economic harm, limits that adjustment to one  
             year in duration, specifies procedures for notifying the  
             public and provides that this provision does not affect  
             the Governor's authority under the Emergency Services  

          6. Requires ARB to establish an environmental justice  
             advisory committee and an economic and technology  
             advisory committee for the purposes of advising ARB on  
             implementation of the bill's provisions, and specifies  
             appointment processes and procedures for those  

          7. Provides that if the regulations adopted pursuant to AB  
             1493 (Pavley), Chapter 200, Statutes of 2002, to reduce  
             GHG emissions from vehicular sources do not remain in  
             effect, ARB shall adopt alternative regulations that  
             achieve the equivalent or greater reductions.

          8. Requires all state agencies to consider and implement  
             GHG emission reduction strategies, and provides that  
             nothing in the bill affects the authority of any other  
             state agency to reduce GHG emissions, the authority of  
             air districts, the authority of the Public Utilities  
             Commission, or utilities' obligation to provide electric  

          9. Authorizes ARB to adopt a schedule of fees to pay for  


                                                                 AB 32

             the costs of implementing the program established  
             pursuant to the bill's provisions.

          10.Provides that the provisions of the bill are severable.

          11.Makes detailed findings and declarations relative to the  
             economic and environmental effects of global warming and  
             climate change.

          12.Establishes definitions of terms used under the bill.


          According to the Senate Environmental Quality Committee  
          analysis, there is broad scientific consensus that rising  
          concentrations of GHG emissions in the atmosphere are  
          resulting in climate changes that will continue to  
          accelerate during this century.  A statement in June 2006,  
          from the Attorney General's Office, provides a succinct  
          statement about the perceived threats from global warming.   
          The statement was provided in support of the Public Utility  
          Commission's promulgating a rule to integrate GHG emission  
          standards into procurement policies and included the  
          following findings:

            "?the best available science establishes that  
            GHG-induced climate change is occurring and is fast  
            approaching a critical 'tipping point'  and that  
            California has a substantial stake in taking every  
            possible action at the earliest juncture to mitigate  
            the potentially devastating impacts - economic as well  
            as environmental - of climate change?

            "Impacts from anthropogenic CO2 emissions that have  
            occurred, are occurring, and will occur, include:  
            temperature increases, heat waves, loss of Artic ice  
            and habitat, loss of Antarctic ice, melting of glaciers  
            and related glacial lake outburst flows, loss of  
            snowpack in California and elsewhere, changes in  
            precipitation patterns, increased hurricane intensity,  
            sea level rise and coastal flooding, public health  
            harms such as increased heat-related illness and smog,  
            harm to habitats, and the potential for substantial  
            social upheaval resulting from significant  


                                                                 AB 32

            environmental changes.  ?[a one meter sea level rise  
            threatens $48 billion of commercial, industrial, and  
            residential structures in the San Francisco Bay]?

            "In litigation between the automakers and the State of  
            California, the automakers have challenged the  
            authority of the State to regulate greenhouse gases  
            from mobile sources.  In response to the automakers  
            claims, the State has gathered declarations from some  
            of the world's leading climate scientists concerning  
            impacts of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions on  
            climate broadly and on California in particular.  Many  
            of these declarations, which starkly establishes the  
            threat to the world and to California:

            "At the same time as climate change is likely to cause  
            a significant reduction in California's effective water  
            supply, it is also likely to cause an increase in  
            California's demand for water because of the sharp  
            increase in summertime temperatures. 

            "The effects of global warming are already observed in  
            the decrease in snow water equivalent and in the  
            earlier snowmelt and streamflow timing of the past  
            several decades.

            "Climate change will increase global sea levels?Sea  
            level rise will have two effects (a) ?increase the  
            intrusion of salt water [into the Sacramento delta];  
            and (b) increase water levels in the channels [of the  
            Delta] and so threaten the integrity of the levees in  
            the Delta.

            "The findings strongly suggest that a climate change  
            consistent with any of the four [commonly employed]  
            climate projections?will lead to a significant increase  
            in heat-related deaths.  This increase will number in  
            the thousands for the five California cities [Fresno,  
            Los Angeles, Riverside, Sacramento and San Francisco]  
            over a period of a decade.

            "If additional human-made global warming (above that in  
            2000) is so large, say 2-3 degrees C, that the expected  
            equilibrium (long-term) sea level rise is of the order  


                                                                 AB 32

            of 25 meters, there would be a potential for a  
            continually unfolding planetary disaster of monstrous  


          In June 2005, the Governor issued an executive order that  
          established the following GHG emission reduction targets  
          for the state:

          By 2010, reduce GHG emissions to year 2000 levels.
          By 2020, reduce GHG emissions to year 1990 levels.
          By 2050, reduce GHG emissions to 80 percent below year 1990  

          As noted in a report by the Legislative Analyst, between  
          1990 and 2000, annual California GHG emissions increased by  
          approximately 13 percent, from about 396 million metric  
          tons in 1990 to 449 million metric tons in 2000.  The  
          Governor's Climate Action Team has estimated that achieving  
          the Governor's GHG reduction targets for 2010 and 2020 will  
          result in GHG emissions that are 11 percent and 29 percent,  
          respectively, below that which would otherwise occur  
          according to "business as usual".

          The initial draft of recommendations drafted by the Climate  
          Action Team included four actions essential to meeting the  
          Governor's GHG reduction goals:

          1. Require climate change emissions reporting from all  
             emitters of GHGs, starting with the largest emitters.

          2. Levy fees on gasoline and diesel sales to reduce demand  
             for these fuels and to fund promotion of alternative,  
             cleaner fuels.

          3. Coordinate state investment funds to reward industry  
             development of emission reduction technologies.

          4. Encourage companies to take early action to reduce their  
             climate change emissions in anticipation of subsequent  
             state, federal, or international emissions reduction
