in USEPA’s Fiscal Year 2008 Budget.

The goal of the Collaborative is to leverage significant federal
funds to reduce emissions from the most polluting diesel sources
in the most affected communities. Although the Collaborative did not
yet exist when EPA estimated its Fiscal Year 2005 (FY05)* budget,
the Agency dedicated over $1.5 million in discretionary funds to
the Collaborative. In FY06, the Collaborative received $3 million
in the official EPA budget though a $5 million appropriation to the
Clean Diesel Initiative.

The President’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2007 EPA proposed budget
has allocated $50 million for the Clean Diesel Initiative (also known
as the National Clean Diesel Campaign, or NCDC), in which the West
Coast Collaborative plays a significant role. EPA’s budget executive
summary features a photograph of Administrator Stephen L. Johnson
announcing a grant to the Sacramento Air Quality Management District
at the FY05 West Coast Collaborative grant announcements in California
in August 2005.

This program increase is one of the largest in EPA’s budget
and is the first priority summarized in the budget. There is an approximately
$300 million decrease in EPA’s discretionary budget. The FY07 proposed
budget now goes to Congress for the appropriations process.

    Lawmakers hope to fund clean air
    fight with $100M a year

    WASHINGTON — California lawmakers hope to secure $100 million a year in federal
    funds to help clean up San Joaquin Valley air pollution. It’s ambitious. It’s
    also just the start. In a Capitol Hill strategy session Wednesday, lawmakers
    agreed they will seek $100 million a year annually through the year 2020. That
    adds up to some $1.3 billion or more for attacking the region’s ozone and particulate
    matter mess. Equal levels of state funding also will be sought.

* FY05 began October 1, 2004 and ended September 30, 2005.
