In their seemingly never-ending march down the road to cripple the state's economy California regulators are proposing a new rule to make warehouse owners and operators responsible for the exhaust emitted by the trucks that service the warehouses.

Proposal to hit up SoCal warehouses for truck emissions at their facilities

That's some stupid sh*t right there. Anything to rape a few bucks out of the industry. Next thing they'll be regulating and charging stores a carbon credit fee for all of the cars and trucks that pull into their parking lots. They must sit up all night trying to invent idiotic ways to squeeze money out of working men, women and industries. They should consider a carbon based fee for those that continually have kids they cannot support, that's where the real issue comes in, overpopulation. (Just my opinion, don't eviscerate me if you don't agree)

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

It will be a green state; the greenest. Once everybody departs, it will be mission accomplished. I can see no amount of money that would ever entice me to live in this state.

Y'know, I'm all for cutting truck emissions but... like. Seriously there has got to be a better way than this. You've got the state government leaning on carriers who don't have the financial backing to upgrade to something emissions compliant, so you're gonna shut them down? Spend the money instead on loans to these carriers so they can upgrade, then boom, two birds with one stone.

Loans must be paid back. How would that help? In the end, it's just another expense that will hurt small businesses due to government overreach. The Harris/Biden WH will most likely adopt such regulations on a national level. Welcome to the "New Green Deal."

Just off the top of my head TCB? Instead of CA's state government paying wages to administer this program (which is asininely mistargeted to begin with), they provide loans to get carriers who *would* have failed emissions and DOT inspections into (slightly, at least) newer, more fuel efficient rigs. Company saves money on repair and fuels costs (if they're not complete idiots but that's their problem). State cuts out a middleman employee and targets the problem of truck emissions directly. This next bit may or may not be received well but if they're supplying the loans and charging market standard interest rates... they come out with more money. Perhaps to invest in the same program. Perhaps the surplus gets dropped into California's transportation fund.

The last four years have soured me some on wide scale government bureaucracy but targeted efforts to actually solve a problem (in this case, "Emissions are too high, source is x, y, z style/weight class, but we can't take tractors off the road. What to do? Replace the tractors.") seem like at least a reasonable place to start a discussion.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.
