CARB: Operators’ voices, more on the regs in podcast part 2

| November 27, 2013

This feature podcast follows the Monday, Nov. 25, installment, which covered the California Air Resources Board’s 11th-hour flexibility maneuvering (click through that link to listen to the first installment). Proposed new options for compliance for various fleets and owner-operators — and the politics behind them — were described there by Joe Rajkovacz of the California Construction Trucking Association.

Find some of their voices in addition to that of Rajkovacz in Part 2 in the CARB series, in which among other points Rajkovacz emphasizes a potential six-month extension to compliance with the Truck and Bus Rule as long as equipment owners register intent to upgrade with CARB by January 31.
