Oakland Port Commission Seeks Resolution to Allow Local Officials Real Power to Clean Up Diesel Truck Pollution; Improve Security, Safety
Date:7/9/2009

m service and put 4,500 clean-burning and alternative fuel vehicles on the road. The LA Port is years ahead of schedule in its goal to reduce diesel truck pollution by 80 percent.

In addition to the environmental gains, economists point to other major benefits of the LA business model that relies on capitalized trucking firms, rather than low-wage independent contractor drivers, for turnover to and upkeep of clean vehicles. Amidst a recession, the LA Clean Trucks Program has reduced public and port subsidies and spurred remarkable private investment:

  • Every $1 in port incentives has leveraged approximately $10 in private investment into the purchase of new vehicles and equipment; pumping $400 million into the industry to date.
  • Truck dealers near the LA harbor are seeing business up by 33 percent vs. new truck sales down 60% nationwide.
  • Economic analysts expect the LA program to generate $5 billion for the regional economy.

Despite these achievements, the ATA is suing to destroy the Southern California Clean Trucks Programs in their entirety. A federal judge initially denied the industry lobby's request for a preliminary injunction, but a 9th circuit appellate panel sent it back to the U.S. district judge, ordering her to reconsider the decision. Judge Christina Snyder again denied the ATA's request to kill the clean-air program in April, but felt compelled to put key elements on hold until the full merits of the ports' case are heard in trial this December. The Port of Oakland's action today demonstrates their frustration with the legal roadblocks that prevent the Commission from aggressively addressing air quality, safety and security challenges sooner.
