State lawmakers will hold a number of meetings this month regarding Delaware’s potential adoption of California’s Advanced Clean Car II regulations.
The proposal, announced by Gov. John Carney in March 2022, would mandate a gradual push toward all new vehicles sold in the state being electric by 2035.
The sales of traditionally powered vehicles would be incrementally scaled down starting in 2026 for model year 2027, eventually reaching a 100% zero-emission vehicle standard by 2035.
Lawmakers did not have an opportunity to vote on the regulations, as they were announced by Gov. Carney in conjunction with the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control under his executive authority.
The meetings are scheduled as follows:
