SACRAMENTO, Calif. /California Newswire/ — Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger issued the statement below following his signing of AB 96 by Assemblymember Ira Ruskin (D-Redwood City) which will provide independent gas stations owners additional financing options to install enhanced vapor recovery systems:
â€œWhile it is important that we move forward with policies aimed at reducing air pollution, it is just as important to ensure our economy is protected along the way. This bill offers relief to small gas station owners who have shown good faith in trying to comply with the California Air Resources Boardâ€™s enhanced vapor recovery deadline but are struggling to operate in a tough economy.”
He added, “Small businesses are the backbone of Californiaâ€™s economy and we must all work to make their transition to more environmentally-friendly technologies as smooth as possible.â€
