LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 966, as amended, Bonta. Greenhouse gases: cement production. Cement plants.
The California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 establishes the State Air Resources Board as the state agency responsible for monitoring and regulating sources emitting greenhouse gases. The act requires the state board to approve a statewide greenhouse gas emissions limit equivalent to the statewide greenhouse gas emissions level in 1990 to be achieved by 2020 and to ensure that statewide greenhouse gas emissions are reduced to at least 40% below the 1990 level by 2030.

This bill would state the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation to reduce the carbon impact of cement production in the state.

This bill, no later than January 1, 2022, would require each cement plant operating in the state to prepare, and submit to the state board, a current facility-specific Environmental Product Declaration, Type III, as specified.
