At Issue: Clean (California) Cars MN and the impact on Minnesota
Guest Speakers: Amanda Smith, Minnesota Pollution Control Agency 
Thursday, June 4th | 8:00am - 9:00am

In a virtual meeting platform, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency will be addressing the White Bear Area Chamber regarding Clean Cars MN that is slated to be imposed in the state of Minnesota. Governor Walz is in support of the low and zero emissions vehicles standards and seeks to implement them through the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.

Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) is considering adopting rules that require vehicle manufacturers to deliver vehicles to the Minnesota market that produce lower emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) and other air pollutants. The Clean Cars Minnesota rulemaking has two parts: the Low-Emission Vehicle (LEV) standard and the Zero-Emission Vehicle (ZEV) standard.

  • The LEV standard would require manufacturers to deliver vehicles for sale in Minnesota that meet the more stringent GHG and other air pollutant emissions standards established by California. The LEV standard sets a tailpipe emissions standard for auto manufacturers; it does not require a personal vehicle inspection program.

  • The ZEV standard would require manufacturers to deliver a certain number of vehicles with ultra-low or zero tailpipe emissions each year for sale in Minnesota, including battery electric vehicles (BEVs), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), and hydrogen-fueled vehicles. The ZEV standard would result in additional electric vehicles available to consumers in Minnesota, but does not require any individual to purchase an electric vehicle.

To date, 14 states and the District of Columbia have adopted the LEV standard, and 11 states have adopted both the LEV and ZEV standards.

We look for a great discussion on this topic and welcome your comments and questions at the end of the program. Registration is required and you will be sent a link to the meeting one day prior to the event.
