About the program
On March 10, 2020, Governor Brown signed Executive Order 20-04, directing state agencies to take actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and respond to climate change in agency planning. One specific directive to the Environmental Quality Commission and the Department of Environmental Quality is to develop program options to cap and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from large stationary sources, transportation fuels, and other liquid and gaseous fuels, including natural gas. DEQ is working to meet this directive by developing a program that is ready by January 2022 and is ensuring that there are meaningful opportunities for public and stakeholder input throughout the program development process.
