HB 5039 an act concerning medium and heavy-duty vehicle emission standards Status: Died (House)

Allows the Department of Energy & Environment to adopt California’s medium and heavy-duty motor vehicle standards and requires DEEP to amend them as the regulations are changed in California effective July 2022. These standards would be stricter than current Connecticut emission standards. The bill would require manufacturers to produce cleaner, more efficient, and more expensive vehicles. It should be noted that the Governor passed through executive order Multi-State Medium- and Heavy-Duty Zero Emission Vehicle Memorandum of Understanding with regional states, Multi-State ZEV Task Force, to examine and create an action plan on this topic. The MOU was signed on July 10, 2020. Merged into SB 4.
