Attorney General Bonta Submits Comment Letter on EPA's Proposed Greenhouse Gas Standards for Heavy-Duty Vehicles
California Attorney General Rob Bonta announced today that he led a coalition of attorneys general and cities in submitting a comment letter to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarding its proposed greenhouse gas standards (GHG) for heavy-duty vehicles. If finalized, EPA's proposal would strengthen GHG standards for model year 2027 heavy-duty vehicles and establish GHG standards for model years 2028 through 2032. Heavy-duty vehicles include garbage collection trucks, delivery trucks, public utility trucks, tractors, and school buses. In their letter, the attorneys general and cities express their support for EPA's proposal, and urge it to move forward with more stringent standards, which technological advancements make feasible nationwide.
