Coalition, Biofuels Group Oppose Clean Cars 2040 Act
Along with the Bioenergy Association of California, the California Advanced Biofuels Alliance, and the Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas, the Coalition has come out in opposition to the Clean Cars 2040 Act (AB 1745), which would prevent the registration of new passenger vehicles purchased in 2040 and after that are not zero emission.
The organizations support the bill’s goals of reducing air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, but they are concerned that the law would have a negative impact on the Low Carbon Fuel Standard program because it could restrict the market for the lowest-carbon fuels, which are critical for the success of the LCFS. Also, the act considers only tailpipe emissions rather than the life-cycle emissions of a vehicle.
