2021 - Assembly Bill 1218 (McCarty, Kevin), Motor Vehicle Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standards: Civil Penalty: Equitable Access to Zero-Emissions Vehicles Fund (Dead)
Would have established a goal of 100 percent new passenger and light-duty vehicle sales to be zero-emission vehicles by 2035. The bill would have required, on and after January 1, 2023, the total passenger vehicles and light-duty vehicles trucks sold by a manufacturer in the State, in a calendar year to meet specified greenhouse gas emissions standards pursuant to a tiered plan that would require the total passenger vehicles and light-duty vehicles trucks to meet, on average, in the 2030 calendar year, a greenhouse gas emissions standard that is 60 percent and 40 percent below the average greenhouse gas emissions level for those classes of vehicles in the 2020 calendar year, respectively. The bill would have required CARB to impose an administrative civil penalty on a manufacturer who violates these requirements. Held on suspense by the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
