2020 – Assembly Bill 254 (Quirk-Silva, Sharon), Alternative fuel vehicles: Flexible Fuel Vehicles (N/A)
Would have required CARB, by April 1, 2020, to develop a summary of E-85 distribution data from 2012 to 2017, as well as data on the number of flexible fuel vehicles registered in California in 2017 and 2018, and submit the summary to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA). The bill also would have required CARB to develop policy recommendations to maximize the use of E-85 and consider adopting those policy recommendations no later than October 1, 2020. The bill also would have authorized the Joint Legislative Committee on Climate Change Policies to recommend that CARB provide support to local governments to maximize their use of flexible fuel vehicles and E-85 fuel. The bill was amended to deal with warewashing machines.
