  • Tracking Important alt fuels legislation in CA - Relevant posts should go here

    Critical legislation that supports California's alternative fuel vehicle, advanced transportation and clean air initiatives has passed in both chambers of the California Legislature, positioning the bill for consideration by Gov. Jerry Brown.

    Central to AB 8 is an extension of the state's clean transportation incentive programs through 2023. Funding in excess of $2 billion - paid for by specific fees and not money from the state's general fund - accompanies the legislation.

    "The bill shows that California is really serious about the transportation sector," John Boesel, president and CEO of CALSTART, tells NGT News. "The beauty is that it supports a wide array of fuels and technologies. It doesn't pick any single winner."

        Link to article? All the stories I've seen have not even mentioned the white sticker, only how the green one for electriclug-in vehicles has been extended.

          Tonight I had attended a public hearing for feedback on the LA Metro HOT lanes program. During the presentation it was mentioned as of February 24, 2014 white and green stickered vehicles do not need to pay the toll and the transponder should be left on 3 at all times.

              AB 1907 (Ridley-Thomas)
              Summary
              This bill would require CNG sold to the public be sold in a gasoline gallon
              equivalent that is equal to 126.67 cubic feet of CNG, and would require LNG
              to be sold in a diesel gallon equivalent that is equal to 6.06 pounds of LNG.
              Beginning on January 1, 2015, instead of using only a cubic foot
              measurement, this bill would impose an excise upon natural gas at the rate
              of $.0887 for each 126.67 cubic feet, or 5.66 pounds, of CNG used, and
              instead of using a gallon measurement, at a rate of $.1017 for each for
              each 6.06 pounds of LNG used.

                Introduced by Assembly Member Muratsuchi
                February 20, 2014


                An act to amend Section 5205.5 of the Vehicle Code, relating to vehicles, and declaring the urgency thereof, to take effect immediately. vehicles.


                LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


                AB 2013, as amended, Muratsuchi. Vehicles: high-occupancy vehicle lanes.
                Existing federal law, until September 30, 2017, authorizes a state to allow specified labeled vehicles to use lanes designated for high-occupancy vehicles (HOVs).
                Existing law authorizes the Department of Transportation to designate certain lanes for the exclusive use of HOVs. Under existing law, until January 1, 2019, or until federal authorization expires, or until the Secretary of State receives a specified notice, those lanes may be used by certain vehicles not carrying the requisite number of passengers otherwise required for the use of an HOV lane, if the vehicle displays a valid identifier issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Existing law authorizes the DMV to issue no more than 40,000 of those identifiers.
                This bill would increase the number of those identifiers that the DMV is authorized to issue to 85,000. 70,000.

                  To be clear, this bill would increase the GREEN stickers for single-occupant HOV access in California from 40,000 to 70,000 (recently the 40,000th sticker has been issued). These stickers are provided plug-in hybrids and all-electric vehicles. Natural gas vehicles get the WHITE sticker - which has no cap. There are currently 47,516 white stickers issued in California. Both the green and white sticker programs expire on January 1, 2019.

                      I suggest this label advertising cngprices.com be stuck on the dispenser, too! Found on the dispenser at Fuel Farm, Auburn WA. A special sticker also explains pricing for card lock members. The addition of an LED light strip centered on the rear, top edge of the million dollar mobile station plus the LED spotlights on the corners add a nice (explosion proof, no doubt) touch!
