Lawn & Garden Emission Reductions Strategy
The Regional Air Quality Council has conducted a stakeholder process during 2023 to develop its Lawn & Garden emission reduction strategy and received the RAQC Board endorsement of the proposal. The proposed regulation and supporting documentation below have been submitted and are scheduled for hearing by the Air Quality Control Commission over the next few months, to culminate in a rulemaking in December 2023. The RAQC proposal addresses Lawn & Garden emission controls to reduce ozone for nonattainment area planning efforts to reach compliance with National Ambient Air Quality Standards during the 2024-26 time frame, as well as to reduce greenhouse gases and toxic air contaminants. The AQCC agenda to request a rulemaking hearing for Regulation 29 is scheduled for September 20, 2023.
