|Meeting||Rule 213 – Fees for Registration Programs|

|Meeting||Rule 1201 – Registration of Agricultural Diesel Engines|
On August 16, 2007, the Board of Directors adopted new Rule 1201. This new rule applies to agricultural operators that use diesel engines rated at 50 brake horsepower and greater.

The ATCM has significant requirements for both existing and new diesel engines used in agricultural processes, including a requirement that all applicable engines are registered with their local air district.
