2022 - Assembly Bill 2731 (Ting, Phil), School Buses: Zero-Emission Vehicles. (Dead)
Low and Zero Emission Vehicles and Infrastructure
Office of Legislative Affairs
Would have required, beginning January 1, 2035, 100 percent of all newly purchased or contracted school buses of a local educational agency (LEA) to be zero-emission, where feasible. The bill would have defined an LEA as a school district, county office of education, or charter school. If a local educational agency determined that the purchase or contracting of a zero-emission school bus was not feasible due to both terrain and route constraints, the local educational agency would have been able to request a one-time extension for a term not to exceed five years from CARB. Held on suspense in the Senate Appropriations Committee.
