The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is holding a public comment period on their proposed Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standards for Heavy Duty Vehicles Phase 3. On the plus side, it will revise the limits of Greenhouse Gas Emissions for heavy-duty trucks and affirm State's rights to regulate locomotive and rail emissions.
Unfortunately, the most stringent option in the proposal only sets a 50% by 2032 sales goal for zero-emissions vehicles when it should require 100% by 2035. Zero-emission heavy-duty truck technologies are available now, proven to work and are cost-effective. Every day a diesel truck is allowed to be purchased, it means 10+ years it will be on the road, spewing dirty diesel pollutants into our lungs and harming kids.
Take action now by submitting a public comment on this critical rule to ensure that the transition to zero emissions solutions is swift in communities all over NJ, but significantly where families are most affected by the harms of the goods movement!
Weigh in TODAY before the comment deadline on June 16.
