United States District Court Eastern District of California

Case Filed:



On January 1, 2012 the California Air Resources Board’s Truck and Bus Regulation (“CARB regulation”) became effective, requiring 1996-2006 model year vehicle weighing over 14,000 pounds to meet certain emissions reduction requirements imposed by the State of California on both intrastate and interstate carriers and owner-operators.  Compliance with the regulations, which requires operators residing outside California to install particulate matter filters on their engines.  These requirements, will impose an unreasonably disparate economic burden on owner-operators who are required to spend many thousands of dollars to retrofit their equipment if they wish to carry freight within California.
