Dear Mr. Lents:

We thank you for your early application and entry into the Project XL program. Your Agency showed commendable initiative in identifying the need for increased flexibility in the Clean Air Act as related to ride share programs. Since the Clean Air Act has now been revised to address the area of concern to your XL project, the intent of the XL program has been met for this project.

As you know, Project XL was developed to test innovative environmental management strategies and, through this process, nurture eXcellence and Leadership in environmental protection. Your participation in Project XL demonstrated that the South Coast Air Quality Management District possesses these qualities. Should there be other issues which you may choose to address via the Project XL process, we would very much welcome such a proposal. Thank you for working with us in a process that holds such promise for the future of environmental protection.
