State Releases Draft Language for Transportation Rule, Including ETRPPublished: May 14, 2021
The Air Pollution Control Division (APCD) released draft language, available now on the Air Quality Control Commission’s website here, on their state transportation rule, which includes Employee Traffic Reduction Program (ETRP) as a potential greenhouse gas reduction strategy for employers within Colorado’s Ozone Nonattainment Area. The APCD’s proposal builds off of work done by the RAQC to develop an ETRP framework.
In addition to ETRP (under Regulation 22), the draft proposal includes language on the Motor Vehicle Emissions Inspection Program (under Regulation 11), as well as minor revisions to the Colorado Low Emission Automobile Regulation (Regulation 20). The GHG Pollution Standard rule language is still being developed and more information will be available soon on next steps.
The APCD encourages interested parties to remain engaged in and updated on the upcoming rulemaking process at the AQCC website. Interested parties can also sign-up for Air Quality Control Commission (AQCC) notices by emailing your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Email Distribution List. You can also send written comments on these rules to the same email address.
