2022 - Assembly Bill 2731 (Ting, Phil), School Buses: Zero-Emission Vehicles. (Dead)
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.
