DAR File No.: 42642

NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
The Clean Fuels and Vehicle Technology Program Act, Sections 19-1-401 through 19-1-405, creates the Clean Fuels and Vehicle Technology Fund (Fund) in Section 19-1-403. Section 19-1-405 authorizes the Air Quality Board to make rules to establish state-wide eligibility requirements for technologies qualified to be awarded grant and loan monies from the Fund.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
After being adopted in 2008 and reviewed in 2013, Rule R307-123 was amended in December 2013. The amendments added language throughout the rule, allowing for intermediate and out-of-useful-life vehicles to be converted to run on alternate fuels, such as natural gas. Demonstration of eligibility requirements for vehicles converted to electricity were added to the rule. Furthermore, criteria was added for demonstration of eligibility for retrofitted vehicles in order to verify that the condition of the vehicle prior to the installation of the retrofit was compliant with the retrofit's certification criteria.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
The Air Quality Board created Rule R307-123 to specify the requirements of the program as outlined in Sections 19-1-401 through 19-1-405. This rule defines certification criteria and proof of purchase requirements for eligible technology. Rule R307-123 allows the Division of Air Quality to administer this program. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
