    CHAIRPERSON NICHOLS: Thank you very much.

    Welcome, everyone.

    A couple of announcements before we get started

    this morning.

    First of all, for anyone who is not familiar with

    our process, if you wish to testify and you haven't signed

    up online, you need to fill out a request to speak card

    that's available in the lobby or from the Clerk and to

    give it to the Clerk. We prefer that you put your name on

    the card, though it's not required. And if you did sign

    up online to testify, you don't need to sign up again, but

    you do need to check in with the Clerk just to make sure

    that your name does not get removed from the list.

    We do impose a three-minute time limit on

    speakers. And if you haven't ever experienced this

    before, it goes by really fast. So it's much better if

    you don't feel like you have to go through your written

    testimony, but just summarize it in your on words. We

  • will get your written testimony, and we'll have an

    opportunity to read it.

    I want to point out the emergency exits at the

    rear of the room. And we have emergency exits also here

    behind the dais. In the event of an alarm ringing, we are

    required to evacuate this room immediately and go down the

    stairs at the back of the auditorium and out of the

    building until we get the all-clear signal.

    We have several regulatory items this morning.

    We're also planning to break at around lunchtime. And we

    will have a closed session after we finish with the item

    on Proposition 1B.

    So with that, I think we can start right in with

    the first item, which is the adoption of regulations that

    would amend the certification and test procedures for

    vapor recovery equipment used at gasoline dispensing

    facilities in California and on cargo tanks that deliver

    gasoline to those facilities. Our vapor recover

    regulations have been in place since 1975, and they've

    been updated a few times since then in order to try to

    either make the regulations more enforceable or to get

    additional emissions reductions. And at this point, I

    think I'll turn it over to Mr. Corey to begin the

    presentation.

    DEPUTY EXECUTIVE OFFICER COREY: All right.

  • Thank you, Chairman Nichols, members of the Board.

    As the Chair stated, the Board for nearly 40

    years has adopted and periodically amended regulations

    that control vapor emissions associated with the storage

    and transfer of gasoline. These regulations apply to each

    step of the gasoline distribution network, including

    refineries, bulk storage facilities, cargo tanks, and

    approximately 20,000 gasoline dispensing facilities

    throughout Calif
