Transport Topics has published an outline of the new emissions standards titled "Calif. Sets Strict Diesel Emissions Rule."

"The California Air Resources Board Friday adopted the strictest diesel emission standards in the nation, requiring expensive diesel particulate filters on rigs on a timetable, over objections the rule could hurt or shut down smaller trucking companies, the Associated Press reported.

Starting in 2011, the new rules will speed up the replacement of thousands of older trucks and buses that are not as clean as newer models that have tougher, federally mandated emissions standards, AP said."
