In 2019, the Oregon Legislature passed House Bill 2007. The legislation authorizes the Environmental Quality Commission of the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality to adopt rules for certification of approved retrofit technologies of a diesel engine that powers a medium-duty truck or a heavy-duty truck.
The legislation includes prohibitions on registering and titling older diesel engines in Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington counties after certain deadlines unless they are equipped with retrofit technologies established by the commission or DEQ.
DEQ is convening an advisory committee to review the technical issues and fiscal impacts related to the proposed rules. In convening this committee, DEQ has appointed members that reflect the range of entities that are both directly and indirectly affected by proposed changes to the rules.
