Christian Law Association to take action to help protect the historic rights of churches to use their buses in reaching others with the Gospel.
California regulations being imposed on owners of diesel-fueled buses and trucks will soon require California churches and other non-profits to make exorbitantly expensive retrofits to their older buses, making it a real possibility that their bus outreaches may be destroyed unless the state exempts them from the regulations. This crisis prompted Christian Law Association to take action to help protect the historic rights of churches to use their buses in reaching others with the Gospel.
CLA attorneys have drafted the enclosed document to clarify the crisis churches are facing in complying with the regulations. We ask the following of you:
First, read the document. It is important that you understand the enormity of the problem facing California churches and nonprofits.
Second, pray that the California Air Resources Board will decide in favor of the nonprofits' petition for an exemption.
Third, ask your state and federal legislators and city leaders to write the ARB in support of the nonprofits' petition for exemption.
Fourth, write the ARB with your own letter in support of the petition for exemption.
Please be encouraged to know that we are standing firm to protect this important outreach tool for churches. We stand with you as you boldly stand for Christ in California.
