Today we joined 28 groups who sent a letter urging Governor Hogan to reduce diesel pollution by swiftly adopting both the Advanced Clean Trucks Rule and the Heavy-Duty Omnibus Rule to tackle climate change and improve public health.
The Advanced Clean Trucks Rule puts on a path of mandating an increasingly higher number of electric trucks sold in the state starting in 2025, and ramping up for more than a decade.
Diesel fumes from medium and heavy duty trucks on the road is a true health hazard.
By enacting this rule, Maryland would join a growing number of states adopting the Advanced Clean Truck Rule, including California, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Washington, and Oregon. Doing so would also help Maryland follow through on its commitment for 30% of all medium and heavy duty vehicles sales to be electric by 2030.
