California and Seven States (CT, ME, MA, NJ, OR, RI, VT) Commit to Faster Transition to Zero-Emission Trucks and Buses

In a collaborative effort to protect public health and accelerate the transition to clean transportation, California is joining with seven other states in committing to develop an action plan to put hundreds of thousands more zero-emission trucks and buses on their roads and highways, the California Air Resources Board announced today.

The Statement of Intent comes as the Board holds its first meeting to consider a proposed Advanced Clean Trucks regulation that would establish sales and reporting requirements for zero-emission medium- and heavy-duty vehicles. The board is expected to consider the first of its kind regulation for adoption next year.
