Advanced Clean Cars II

Proposed rule

Rulemaking contact: Rachel Sakata, 503-863-4271

This rulemaking is central to DEQ’s efforts to reduce air pollution and transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions. Oregon currently implements a Low Emission Vehicle/Zero Emission Vehicle program that requires manufacturers to deliver to Oregon a certain percentage of zero emission vehicles through the 2025 model year. This rulemaking proposes to adopt by reference California’s Advanced Clean Cars II rule, which will transition all new light-duty vehicle sales in Oregon to zero-emission by 2035. The rule also includes updates to the LEV program rules to ensure they are identical to California’s current light duty vehicle emission standards.

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.
