Regulatory Measures for 2014
California Health and Safety Code Section 40923 requires air districts to annually post scheduled regulatory measures to be adopted to satisfy attainment plan commitments. There are two rule commitments in the Districtís adopted attainment plans for 2014:
- Amendments to Rule 4905 (Natural Gas-Fired, Fan-Type, Residential Central Furnaces). 2012 PM2.5 Plan and 2013 Plan for the Revoked 1-Hour Ozone Standard commitment.
- Amendments to Rule 4901 (Wood Burning Fireplaces and Wood Burning Heaters). 2012 PM2.5 Plan commitment. Although the plan commits to amend this in 2016, the Governing Board directed the District to amend it in 2014.
Adopted attainment plans contain additional regulatory commitments for 2015 and beyond. Section 40923 does not preclude the District from amending or adopting rules not included on the annual regulatory measures schedule as needed to address technical issues or other requirements.
Prior to adopting or amending any rule, a notice is published in selected San Joaquin Valley newspapers and the District Governing Board accepts testimony at a public hearing. Copies of any proposed rules would be available via mail subscription at the District, at the District's website here when the rule is developed, and via email using the Districtís email list located here. Information on District rule development is available from District staff at (559)230-6100.
