State’s $10B Package to Accelerate Zero Emission Transition

U.S. Governors Call for Priority on Zero Emission Vehicles

Gov. Gavin Newsom joined a bipartisan group of 12 U.S. governors calling for the Biden Administration to create a path ensuring that all new vehicles sold in the country will be zero-emission in the next two decades. In addition, this effort should boost states’ investments in EV charging and fueling infrastructure.

“By establishing a clear regulatory path to ensuring that all vehicles sold in the United States are zero-emission, we can finally clear the air and create high-road jobs. Moving quickly towards a zero-emission transportation future will protect the health of all communities,” wrote the governors in a joint letter. “With bold federal leadership, American workers will lead the way in designing, building and driving clean and affordable vehicles.”

The letter signed by Newsom and the governors of Connecticut, Hawaii, Maine, Massachusetts, New Mexico, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Rhode Island and Washington calls on the administration to set standards requiring all new passenger cars and light-duty trucks to be zero-emission by 2035. Moreover, all new medium-duty and heavy-duty vehicles would be zero-emission by 2045.

EVs are California’s top export and the industry has created 70,000 jobs in the state.
