Rosenbaum Quoted on New Diesel Emission Rules

06 August 2007 San Diego Business Journal News

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) recently approved new regulations for emissions from off-road diesel engines. While these rules are beneficial for the environment, they could cut a deep hole in the industry’s pockets. Wayne Rosenbaum, senior counsel in Foley’s San Diego office and a member of the firm’s Environmental Regulation Practice, was quoted in the August 6, 2007 issue of the San Diego Business Journal in the article, “Diesel Emissions Regs to Present Huge Costs,” as saying that the new emission standards and the runoff rules are derailing the building industry. He added that the CARB, a single-purpose agency, did not evaluate the impact of such rules on society and these new standards are not optimal because of the associated costs.
