    Chapter 2C:

      Section: 26:2C-8.36: Anniversary date of plans, submissions required from owner.

          
11. a. The date on which all parts of a fleet retrofit plan, combined fleet retrofit plan, or fleet averaging plan have been approved and are in effect shall serve as the anniversary date of the fleet retrofit plan, combined fleet retrofit plan, or fleet averaging plan approval for the purposes of this subsection. On each annual anniversary of the date of the fleet retrofit plan, combined fleet retrofit plan, or fleet averaging plan approval, or 90 days after the date of the fleet retrofit plan, combined fleet retrofit plan, or fleet averaging plan approval, or the approval of the most recent supplement or modification thereto, as applicable, whichever is later, each owner of regulated vehicles or regulated equipment shall submit a supplement to the fleet retrofit plan or combined fleet retrofit plan, or a modification of the fleet averaging plan, as applicable, indicating any changes to the fleet that have been made.

b. A supplement submitted pursuant to subsection a. of this section shall include:

(1) a description of any on-road diesel vehicles or off-road diesel equipment owned, operated, or leased by the owner added or removed from the fleet since the submission of the fleet retrofit plan or combined fleet retrofit plan, or the last supplement thereto; and

(2) for the regulated vehicles or regulated equipment added to the fleet, a description of the best available retrofit technology and the specific vehicle or piece of equipment on which the specific best available retrofit technology would be used.

c. A modification to a fleet averaging plan submitted pursuant to subsection a. of this section shall include:

(1) a description of any on-road diesel vehicles or off-road diesel equipment owned, operated, or leased by the owner or removed from the fleet since the submission of the fleet averaging plan or the last modification, thereto;

(2) for the regulated vehicles or regulated equipment added to the fleet, a description of the best available retrofit technology and the specific vehicle or piece of equipment on which the specific best available retrofit technology would be used that was not described in the fleet averaging plan or the last modification thereto; and

(3) a description of how the required fine particle reductions shall be achieved through a combination of the use of best available retrofit technology on specific regulated vehicles and other on-road diesel vehicles, or on specific regulated equipment and other off-road diesel equipment, and other measures or applications of best available retrofit technology consistent with the provisions of the rules and regulations adopted pursuant to section 3 of P.L.2005, c.219 (C.26:2C-8.28).

d. The department shall review, and approve or disapprove all parts of the supplement or the modification no later than one year after its submittal date. The department may approve or disapprove any supplement or modification to any plan in part, and require the owner of the regulated vehicles or regulated equipment to comply with the approved part or parts of the supplement or modification prior to final approval of other parts of the supplement or the modification.

e. Whenever the department disapproves a supplement to a fleet retrofit plan, combined fleet retrofit plan, or a modification to a fleet averaging plan, or a part thereof, the department shall provide a detailed explanation to the owner or operator of the fleet indicating the deficiencies of the disapproved supplement or modification, or part thereof, and the recommendations of the department to correct the deficiencies. The owner or a group of owners who receive disapproval of a supplement to a fleet retrofit plan or combined fleet retrofit plan, or of a modification to a fleet averaging plan, or a part thereof, shall make the recommended revisions to the supplement or the modification within 60 days after the receipt of the disapproval notification from the department, and submit the final revised supplement or modification, or the revised part that had been disapproved, to the department. If the department does not take further action within 30 days after receipt of the final revised supplement or modification, or the revised part that had been disapproved, the revised supplement to the fleet retrofit plan or combined fleet retrofit plan, or modification to the fleet averaging plan, or the revised part that had been disapproved shall be considered approved and in effect. If the department finds within 30 days after the receipt of the final revised supplement or modification or the final revised part that had been disapproved, that the owner has not complied with the recommended revisions, the department may take further action to require compliance with this subsection, but the supplement or modification shall be in effect as of the date of the close of the 30-day period after the receipt of the final revised supplement or modification.

f. Upon the date of final approval of the applicable part, and the date the final supplement or modification is in effect, the owner shall be subject to the provisions of the fleet retrofit plan or combined fleet retrofit plan, and the supplement thereto, or the fleet averaging plan and the modification thereto, except as may otherwise be provided pursuant to subsection e. of section 10 of P.L.2005, c.219 (C.26:2C-8.35).

g. No owner of a regulated vehicle or regulated equipment shall be required to install or use a retrofit device on a regulated vehicle or piece of regulated equipment as required pursuant to a supplement to a fleet retrofit plan or combined fleet retrofit plan, or a modification to a fleet averaging plan or, any part of such a supplement or a modification, in any year unless the State Treasurer certifies for that year that the constitutionally dedicated moneys have been deposited in the Diesel Risk Mitigation Fund, and the Department of Environmental Protection certifies that sufficient moneys are available in the fund to pay the cost of purchase and installation of the retrofit devices required to be used by an owner by rule or regulation or by the supplement to a fleet retrofit plan or combined fleet retrofit plan or the modification to a fleet averaging plan in that year.

Provided that the State Treasurer has issued the certification that the constitutionally dedicated moneys have been deposited in the fund for that year, the department may determine the amount of moneys available in the fund for that year, require the purchase and installation of those retrofit devices in those regulated vehicles or pieces of regulated equipment for which sufficient moneys are available, and certify that sufficient moneys are available for those retrofit devices to be purchased for, and installed in, those regulated vehicles or pieces of regulated equipment.
