Tell Governor Murphy that his administration needs to adopt Advanced Clean Cars II (ACCII) as soon as possible. His Department of Environmental Protection only has until the end of the year to finalize this rule and ensure that New Jersey doesn't fall behind other states in the transition to electric vehicles.
ACC II, if adopted, specifically when combined with a comprehensive just transition plan that ensures no workers and communities are left behind, will take the state’s already growing zero-emission vehicle market and robust motor vehicle emission control rules and augment them to meet more aggressive tailpipe emissions standards in order to ramp up to 100% zero-emission vehicles. The transportation sector is the largest source of climate-harming pollution in New Jersey, generating roughly 40% of our climate pollutants. Within the transportation sector, more than 70% of climate pollution comes from passenger cars and trucks. A key strategy to decarbonize this sector is accelerating the transition to a zero-emission vehicle fleet. The NJDEP 80 x 50 report from October 2020 clearly stated that New Jersey needed to move to require 100% of light-duty vehicle sales to electric and plug-ins by 2035. Our best mechanism for accelerating this transition is adopting the ACC II regulations this calendar year.
