California’s recent announcement of a new ICE vehicle ban after 2035 is facing more criticism outside the state.
The Air Resources Board of California (CARB) recently said that the sale of new ICE vehicles will be banned after 2035. While it has received varying responses from across the country, several states adhering to the CARB standards are now considering dropping them due to their ambitious nature. regulation.
At present over 14 states are compliant with CARB standards, some of which have joined in the last five years. However, many are now reconsidering this relationship due to the ban on new ICE vehicles. Minnesota is a state that has now been divided by a recent regulation change. According to Fox BusinessThe Minnesota Auto Dealers Association has said the ban would not make it suitable for resident transportation due to the state’s cold climate.
Colorado is another state that is tired of the new regulation. According to a statement made to The Associated Press From the Colorado Energy Office, “While the governor shares the goal of moving quickly toward electric vehicles, he is skeptical about requiring 100% of cars sold to be electric by a certain date as technology changes rapidly. has been.”
Perhaps the most extreme reaction to the new regulation has come from Virginia. The state has only recently committed to CARB standards, but Governor Glenn Youngkin and the state legislature are attempting to leave the relationship.
At the same time, five of the 14 states that currently comply with CARB regulations are expected to adopt or have already accepted the 2035 ICE vehicle ban. Washington and Massachusetts have already accepted the ban, while New York, Vermont and Oregon are expected to choose similarly.
At the same time, 17 states have sued the state of California over the ban through federal court, with more legal challenges expected.
It’s unclear how voters in these states feel about the new rule. Voting is yet to be completed, so it remains to be seen whether people accept or reject the new ban. Furthermore, polling does not yet show how people would feel if the ban came in their state. This situation is likely to heat up only after Labor Day weekend.
