EPA action may allow Californians to breathe deeper
The Federal the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved two waivers Friday March 31st to allow California to impose stronger emissions standards for heavy-duty trucks and vehicles.
Going forward, California will require truck manufacturers to accelerate their sales of zero emission vehicles (ZEV’s).
California and several other states represent 22% of the nation’s truck market.
Governor Newsom says the EPA’s decision “is a big deal for climate action.” He claimed it will “protect millions of Californians from the harmful pollution dirty diesel trucks spew in communities around the state.”
