2021 - Assembly Bill 1069 (Lackey, Tom), Zero-Emission Passenger Vehicles: Underrepresented Communities (2-Year)
Would set a goal that at least 60 percent of new zero-emission passenger vehicles (ZEV) sold in the State for noncommercial private use be purchased by, or on behalf of persons from, an underrepresented community as defined by the bill. The bill also stated that this goal should supersede any other ZEV goals. Additionally, the bill would prohibit CARB from pursuing strategies to implement any goal for zero-emission passenger vehicle sales established by statute or executive order unless those strategies are also designed to achieve the zero-emission vehicle equity goal established by this bill simultaneously. Was not heard in Assembly Transportation Committee.
