Establishes the Clean Freight Corridor Efficiency Program.

Issue

Existing law imposes various limitations on the emissions of air contaminants for the control of air pollution from vehicular and non-vehicular sources. Existing law establishes the California Transportation Commission and requires it to advise and assist the Secretary of Transportation and the Legislature in formulating and evaluating state policies and plans for transportation programs in the state. Existing law requires the Department of Transportation to update the California Transportation Plan every 5 years and ensure that the plan addresses how the state will achieve maximum feasible emissions reductions. Existing law also requires the Transportation Agency to prepare a state freight plan on or before December 31, 2014, and every 5 years thereafter, with specified elements to govern the immediate and long-range planning activities and capital investments of the state with respect to the movement of freight.

This bill establishes the Clean Freight Corridor Efficiency Program, to be jointly administered by the California Transportation Commission and State Air Resources Board, in coordination with other state entities. The bill would require the program to establish criteria for identifying qualifying freight corridors and define minimum requirements for clean truck corridors, surrounding local streets and roads, and associated facilities. The bill would require the program to identify Californiaís 5 most-used freight corridors and objectives for improving the corridors, as specified, and identify projects and funding opportunities in these corridors. The bill would require the commission and the board to jointly submit a report containing the programís criteria, requirements, and recommendations to the Legislature and the Governor by December 31, 2023, and every 5 years thereafter. The bill would also require the programís criteria, requirements, and recommendations to be incorporated into the development of the state freight plan and the California Transportation Plan.
