	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   SB 1328, Lowenthal. Greenhouse gas emissions: motor vehicle cabin
temperature.
   The California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 designates the
State Air Resources Board as the state agency charged with
monitoring and regulating sources of emissions of greenhouse gases.
The state board is required to adopt a statewide greenhouse gas
emissions limit equivalent to the statewide greenhouse gas emissions
level in 1990 to be achieved by 2020, and to adopt rules and
regulations in an open public process to achieve the maximum
technologically feasible and cost-effective greenhouse gas emission
reductions.
   This bill would require the state board to consider specified
matters if adopting or amending regulations to reduce motor vehicle
cabin temperature in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.


THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  SECTION 1.  Section 43018.7 is added to the Health and Safety Code,
to read:
   43018.7.  If adopting or amending regulations to reduce motor
vehicle cabin temperature in order to reduce greenhouse gas
emissions, the state board shall consider all of the following:
   (a) Potential reductions in air-conditioning use that can be
achieved while a motor vehicle is moving, in addition to reductions
in air-conditioning use when a motor vehicle is parked.
   (b) Potential conflicts between, and relative benefits of, motor
vehicle cabin temperature reduction requirements and technologies
that provide motor vehicle greenhouse gas emission reductions through
various means.
   (c) The flexibility necessary to achieve overall maximum
greenhouse gas emission reductions from motor vehicles.
