The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) is moving forward with a Proposed Rule – Indirect Source Rule (ISR) for Ports. If enacted, it may cap cargo throughput at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Under this rule the ports would be required to meet an emissions cap and each marine terminal operator would have to meet their own emissions cap. This rule is “in addition” to all the CARB zero emission requirements.
Join us to learn how this proposal will impact the future of the supply chain in Southern California.
