On July 19, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) released a proposal at a workshop that would require new passenger cars sold in California in 2025 to emit 75 percent less smog-forming pollution than today’s vehicles. The proposal also aims to overhaul the state's landmark zero-emission vehicle program, including measures to build an infrastructure for electric, fuel cell, and other advanced clean-vehicle technologies. CARB also plans to work with the Environmental Protection Agency and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to develop national greenhouse gas emissions standards for 2017-2025 model year cars and light trucks. The rules by all three organizations are scheduled to be released September 28. CARB’s governing board is scheduled to vote on the rule package at its November 17 meeting.
