Background

On May 9, 2019, OAL approved CAEATFA’s initial emergency regulations to establish the Affordable Multifamily Energy Efficiency Financing Program. The regulations were initially effective for 180 days and were readopted twice under the emergency rulemaking process, extending the emergency regulations for two consecutive 90-day periods.

During the period of time that the AMF regulations were effective under the emergency rulemaking process, CAEATFA staff worked diligently to make the regulations permanent. On April 21, 2020 the CAEATFA Board approved the regulations with modifications to clarify the language of the regulation text made during the regular rulemaking process. On May 5, 2020, CAEATFA timely submitted to OAL the Certificate of Compliance and all corresponding documents required to complete the emergency rulemaking process. OAL approved and filed the Certificate of Compliance and regulations with the California Secretary of State on June 17, 2020. The regulations, in their entirety, became effective on June 17, 2020, per Government Code Section 11343.4(b)(3).
