Department of Ecology seeks comments on emission rules

November 13, 2012

By Staff

The public can review and comment on proposed routine updates to the state rule for low-emission vehicle standards before Nov. 14.

In 2005, Gov. Chris Gregoire and state legislators adopted California’s vehicle emissions standards. The controls limit emissions of greenhouse gases and common air pollutants, such as carbon monoxide and fine particulate matter.

The updated standards apply only to 2009 and newer model year passenger cars, light-duty trucks and medium-duty passenger vehicles, such as most vans and SUVs.

Lawmakers require the state Department of Ecology to update the rules whenever California updates emissions regulations. Find the proposed Washington change at
