Not supporting the California low carbon fuel standard (Website, 2015)

Extract from Source:

The Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) is a regulation developed by the California Air Resources Board as part of the implementation of AB 32. It requires fuel providers to reduce the carbon intensity of gasoline and diesel fuel 10 percent by 2020. Though simple sounding, the regulation creates major problems for the state’s refiners. According to the Boston Consulting Group, the LCFS will have a profound impact on the cost of providing fuels, and will result in major job losses and declines in tax revenue.

Opposing Califoria's Low Carbon Fuel Standard (Press releases, WSPA website 2015)

Extract from Source:

As anticipated, the California Air Resources Board has voted to re-authorize the state's Low Carbon Fuel Standard. WSPA and its member companies continue to view the program as infeasible and poor policy for achieving carbon reduction in the transportation sector. As written, CARB's Low Carbon Fuel Standard can jeopardize California’s energy future and create additional uncertainty. California motorists need to know what is coming and how these regulations will impact transportation fuels. [...] Conversely, a Low Carbon Fuel Standard drives up the cost of making every gallon of transportation fuel California businesses and families depend on.
