A bill strongly supported by industry, AB 1846 (M. Pérez; D-Coachella), which amends the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) to expand the authorized use of a “focused” environmental impact report (EIR) for installation of mandated pollution control equipment also to include a project that reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to comply with the California Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32). California is aggressively working to meet its ambitious environmental goals set forth by AB 32. As regulations are being adopted to reduce California’s greenhouse gas emission levels, companies subject to compliance with these regulations must make significant modifications to existing facilities in order to reduce emissions in compliance with the law, and it makes sense to assure that CEQA is updated in a way to facilitate these efforts.
