California Air Resources Board: SB 375 Implementation
California state law (Senate Bill 375 (SB 375), Statutes of 2008) requires the California Air Resources Board (ARB) to set regional targets for the purpose of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from passenger vehicles, for 2020 and 2035. If regions develop integrated land use, housing and transportation plans that meet the SB 375 targets, new projects in these regions can be relieved of certain review requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act. The targets apply to the regions in the State covered by the 18 metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs).
