First I must correct my last article. I wrote that the Port of Oakland would soon be converting the Alameda Navel Air Station to Port use. I should have written the Oakland Army Supply Depot. I apologize to any of you who went to Alameda in search of work. I can also further report that a preference will be shown for job applicants who reside in Oakland. To qualify as a resident of Oakland you must show proof that you have lived there for 7 days! I suppose this stringent requirement will be strictly enforced.

I spent all day Thursday May 24th at CARB, along with Betty Plowman. The morning was a group of “experts” talking of many perils of black carbon and the immediate need for action based on their “science”.

This last month I attended my first meeting at the Port of Oakland, which included representatives from the truck working group, the port, the shippers, the teamsters and longshoreman trades plus the drayage industry.

The Port of Oakland is ranked third in West Coast shipping volume behind Long Beach and Los Angeles in terms of shipping and transportation generates about 14 percent of our state’s economy, so it’s a big piece of the pie.

The year was 2006 and things seemed to be warming up in California. We had a real live movie star acting as governor; he fit right in with the rest of the state government players, who are mostly actors themselves

Soon an action drama was needed to prove how much smarter and forward looking we are. Schazaam! How about an official act, AB 32 aka “The Global Warming Solutions Act”. It started out with boffo reviews and much hoopla.

As a member of either the California Concrete Pumpers Alliance (CCPA) or the California Construction Trucking Association (CCTA), you have a great advantage--the benefit of timely knowledge relating to many rules and regulations and how they apply to your operation. Few would argue that the constantly changing regulations and government policies are overwhelming for any one person, and if you are reading this, I’m assuming that you ‘re probably a member and will be able to reap the rewards earned through the work of a number of people who devote a great many hours to decoding and focusing on how rules and regulations will be applied to you as a business owner.
