In March 2010, Nor-Cal Produce, a family-owned produce business in West Sacramento, was fined $32,500 by the California Air Resources Board (ARB, or CARB). The company was not charged with, or even accused of, illegal emissions; like many other businesses, it had merely failed to notice a new regulation posted by CARB requiring all semi-trailers, shipping containers, vans, and rail cars with diesel-powered refrigerators to file a report with the agency. We had no knowledge of the law, Nor-Cals Chief Financial Officer Todd Achando told CalWatchDog, a news blog that monitors California government. My operations manager happened to see it mentioned in a trade magazine about a year and a half after the deadline passed. Because Nor-Cal reported itself to CARB and cooperated, the agency reduced the $200/day fine from $86,600 to $32,500.
Kit Enger and his fellow dune buggy manufacturers also cooperated with CARB, but found it was like dealing with a mob protection racket. Enger, president of the Compliant Car Builders Association in Oceanside, California, said association members attended the agencys implementation outreach workshop for OHRV (off-highway recreational vehicles) and worked diligently with CARB certification staff to devise a program whereby all industry members could efficiently and effectively certify their vehicles and engines. Despite the increased costs and inconvenience of complying with CARBs new regulations, association members thought things were going pretty well until January 2008 when CARB hit them with $3.6 million in penalties for alleged violations. The associations lawyers worked the fine down to $600,000, but Enger says even that penalty was unconstitutional, amounting to an ex post facto prosecution for engines modified and sold before the new CARB regulations went into effect.
