The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency (PSCAA) reached out to the Health District and requested to give a presentation to the Board on the consideration of a regional clean fuel standard.
PSCAA has set a target of reducing climate pollution by 50 percent below 1990 levels by 2030, and is considering adopting a regional clean fuel standard to help meet that target. The purpose of a clean fuel standard is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from transportation fuels using a flexible market-based approach that supports innovation. The standard would apply to PSCAA's jurisdiction – King, Kitsap, Pierce, and Snohomish counties. PSCAA is currently drafting a formal rule for its Board of Directors to consider for action in December 2019.
Attached as Exhibit A is the PowerPoint presentation that will be given by Craig Kenworthy, Executive Director of PSCAA. More information on the clean fuel standard can be found here:
