The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is planning to adopt clean car standards and would like to hear your feedback and comments. These standards will protect our air, give consumers more pollution-free vehicle choices, and save Minnesotans money. If you believe it’s time to address climate change and make common-sense decisions that benefit our state, we need your voice in this process.
Transportation is the #1 source of climate pollution in Minnesota, and cleaner cars are one of our greatest opportunities to reduce emissions. Clean car standards will require car manufacturers to supply more pollution-free cars, trucks and SUVs to Minnesota consumers.
There are more than 40 models of electric cars sold in the U.S., but most of them aren’t available at Minnesota auto dealers. American automakers like Ford and GM have announced plans for dozens of new electric models in the next five years, including electric crossovers, SUVs and pickup trucks. Clean car standards will ensure they are available on local car lots throughout the state.
The future is electric. But things aren’t changing quickly enough to protect our local environment. Minnesota is on the cusp of joining fourteen other states and the District of Columbia in adopting clean car standards. You can help it happen by submitting a comment today.
