SB1 Data Survey

As many of you know, recently SB1, the gas tax/highway maintenance bill, passed. Provisions within this law require the retirement, or engine re-powering, for any engine in all California (DMV) registered vehicles. In an attempt to make changes to the existing legislation as outlined below, CGA needs the following information from ever water well drilling or pump contractor, and every manufacturer/supplier from within the state. Please review the legislation in the current law below, and provide your feedback on the following pages.
