So far, CARB has held two auctions, which have generated a total of approximately half of a billion dollars in revenue.3 Under state bills signed into law in 2012, auction revenue is allocated to a “Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund,” but a portion of it may also be used for general fund expenditures. The California Legislative Analyst’s Office has estimated that allowance auctions will generate $1 billion to $14 billion per year, and up to $75 billion in total by 2020. CARB has recently begun deliberations on
"how to spend the revenue from the first auctions".
