Question regarding CA emissions warranty

After getting my bearings done I'm now looking to address the next weak point in the car, throttle actuators.
I had searched extensively on the emissions coverage but couldn't find conclusive info.

Here are a few questions that I couldn't seem to find clear answers to:

-Was the warranty extended from the original 7years/70k?

Is the warranty 7yrs OR 70k, whichever comes first?

Has anyone successfully had the TA's covered after 7 years?

My car is an 08 but I'm currently only at 58k miles. I'd like to avoid paying for this if it's covered....

It's not coverage for throttle actuators. It's for idle control valve. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong!

There is a CA emissions warranty that covers throttle actuators for 7yr/70k miles

Can you share a link to the proof? What I've seen in the past was mistaken to be TAs when it was the idle control valve. Would be nice, however most of us are just over the 7 years now!

Got my TAs covered, but it was well within 7/70.
