 Diesel soot traps in California

The LA Times just reported that California will be requiring "diesel soot traps" on all diesel engines (see link below). Does anyone know more about this? Will they require some modification for small tractors? Thanks in advance.P.S. This link is only good for about 5 days, per the LA Times.

 Diesel soot traps in California

I assume that you are referring to the LA times article at:
http://www.latimes.com/news/state/20000714/t000066182.html

There is more information at the Air Resources Board at:
http://www.arb.ca.gov/toxics/diesel/ad/draftrrp/index.htm
However, I gather that the regulations have not been set and they will need to go through a public comments period prior to issuing regulations. If you are concerned, perhaps you can attend a public comment session.

I have not found a retail source for diesel soot traps, however a couple of descriptions by manufacturers are:
