Even as the California Air Resources Board has set Sept. 1 as the start date of its mandated inflation pressure check program, the body said it will accept a third round of public comment on potential changes to the action.
This opportunity for public comment concludes July 6.
CARB said comments may be submitted by regular mail or e-mail to:
Clerk of the Board, Air Resources Board, 1001 I St., Sacramento, CA 95814.
Beginning Sept. 1, all California automotive service providers will be required to check and inflate the tires of each passenger car brought in for service to the recommended tire pressure rating. They will also be required to indicate on the vehicle service invoice that a tire inflation service was completed.
On March 19, the California Office of Administrative Law disapproved CARB’s proposed adoption of Section 95550. It cited CARB’s failure to comply with clarity and necessity standards, a failure to follow the required procedure, and the fact the regulatory file did not contain all required documents. These requirements have since been met.
