  • PROCEEDINGS

    CHAIRPERSON NICHOLS: Good morning, everybody.

    We have more than a good selection of stakeholders with us

    this morning. We want to welcome everybody to the January

    23rd, 2014, public meeting of the Air Resources Board.

    The meeting will now come to order. And we will begin by

    saying the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag.

    (Thereupon the Pledge of Allegiance was

    Recited in unison.)

    CHAIRPERSON NICHOLS: The Clerk will please call

    the roll.

    BOARD CLERK JENSEN: Dr. Balmes?

    BOARD MEMBER BALMES: Here.

    BOARD CLERK JENSEN: Ms. Berg?

    BOARD MEMBER BERG: Here.

    BOARD CLERK JENSEN: Mr. De La Torre?

    Mr. Eisenhut?

    BOARD MEMBER EISENHUT: Here.

    BOARD CLERK JENSEN: Supervisor Gioia?

    BOARD MEMBER GIOIA: Here.

    BOARD CLERK JENSEN: Professor Sperling?

    BOARD CLERK JENSEN: Chairman Nichols?

    CHAIRPERSON NICHOLS: Here.

    BOARD CLERK JENSEN: Madam Chairman, we have a

    quorum.

    CHAIRPERSON NICHOLS: I would note one change in

    the roll call is that we used to call her Council Member,

    I believe. And now she's Mayor Mitchell. So

    congratulations on your elevation.

    BOARD MEMBER MITCHELL: It's rotation.

    CHAIRPERSON NICHOLS: It's a good thing anyway.

    And I have a couple of announcements to make

    before we get started. First, a reminder that anyone who

    would like to testify should fill out a request to speak

    card. These are available in the lobby right outside the

    Board meeting room. Please return it to the Board

    assistant or the clerk, these people down here in the

    front, if at all possible, prior to the commencement of

    the item, because otherwise it gets very confusing and

  • difficult for them to juggle speakers while we're also

    actually trying to run the hearing.

    We appreciate it if you would remember that we

    try to impose a three-minute time limit. And you can help

    us with that by putting your testimony in your own words

    rather than reading. If you have written testimony, it

    will be read by us and will be entered into the record.

    Also for safety reasons, I'm required to remind

    you that there are emergency exits at the rear of the

    auditorium as well as to the right and left side of this

    dais that the Board is sitting on. In the event of a fire

    alarm, we're required to evacuate the room immediately, go

    down the stairs, and out of the building until we hear an

    all-clear signal, at which point we can then come back and

    resume the hearing.

    Okay. Now, without further ado, to begin the

    meeting, we're going to start with the items that are on

    the consent calendar, of which we have only one, which was

    to consider the approval of the California Infrastructure

    State Implementation Plan. This is an element of our

    required State Implementation Plan under the Clean Air

    Act.

    I would like to ask the Clerk if any witnesses

    have signed up to testify. No, we have none.

    Are there any Board members who would like to see

    BOARD MEMBER RIORDAN: Move approval, Madam

    Chair.

    BOARD MEMBER BALMES: I'll second.

    CHAIRPERSON NICHOLS: Before we vote on this one,

    we did receive a comment letter on this item. They didn't

    ask to testify, and they're not protesting against us

    handling it in this manner. But we would like to make the
