    The Executive Officer's Proposed Goals and Priority Objectives, and Proposed Budget for FY 2021-22 have been developed and are recommended for adoption. The Budget and Work Program for FY 2021-22 represents input over the past several months from Board members, staff, and the public. This year’s process will include meetings of the Budget Advisory Committee and two budget workshops, one for the public on April 6, 2021 and one for the Board on April 9, 2021. The Proposed Budget incorporates, pursuant to Rule 320, an increase of most fees by 4.5 percent reflecting the Consumer Price Index from last year and this year. This action is to adopt the Executive Officer’s Proposed Goals and Priority Objectives, and Proposed Budget for FY 2021-22. (Review: Special Board Meeting/Budget Workshop, April 9, 2021)

    B. Determine That Proposed Amendments to Rule 1469.1 – Spraying Operations Using Coatings Containing Chromium, Are Exempt from CEQA, and Amend Rule 1469.1

    Proposed Amended Rule 1469.1 would further reduce hexavalent chromium emissions from chromate spray coating operations by including requirements for other related activities such as dried coating removal and demasking, enhancing the point source requirements, enhancing parameter monitoring requirements for air pollution controls, and further minimizing the release of fugitive emissions through additional requirements for building enclosure, housekeeping, and best management practices. The proposed amendments would also remove outdated definitions and provisions. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that the proposed amendments to Rule 1469.1 – Spraying Operations Using Coatings Containing Chromium, are exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act; and 2) Amending Rule 1469.1 – Spraying Operations Using Coatings Containing Chromium. (Reviewed: Stationary Source Committee, March 19, 2021)

    In June 2016, the Board approved a contract with VeRail Technologies (VeRail) to develop a natural gas locomotive using U.S. EPA Clean Air Technology Initiative (CATI) funds. VeRail has since dissolved leaving $90,825 in CATI funds unused. Subsequently, in 2017, the Board approved $210,000 in CATI funds for a project with Rail Propulsion Systems (RPS) to develop a battery powered switcher locomotive. The U.S. EPA has since approved the reallocation of unused funds towards further enhancements to the RPS project. This action is to amend the contract with RPS to further the development of a battery electric switcher locomotive in an amount not to exceed $90,825 of unused U.S. EPA CATI funds from the Clean Fuels Program Fund (31).
