Aldrich Public Library, Milne Room, 6 Washington Street, Barre, VT
The Vermont Agency of Natural Resources invites you to learn about, discuss and comment on proposed rules that require auto manufacturers to provide even more electric vehicles and cleaner internal combustion engine vehicles in Vermont. These rules will further reduce greenhouse gas and air pollution from passenger cars, light-duty trucks, and medium- and heavy-duty vehicles and engines that are delivered for sale in Vermont. Adoption of these rules was recommended in Vermont’s Climate Action Plan (CAP) to help reduce climate pollution from transportation in Vermont - the largest sector of emissions in Vermont. They are part of a suite of recommendations in the CAP that also include investing in public transit, bike and pedestrian lanes, and reducing the number of miles we travel through investments in our downtowns.
Goals of the Event:
* ANR will provide an overview of the benefits and impacts of the rules
* Get information about existing programs and resources to support the transition to electric vehicles
* Participate in a discussion of what other policies need to be in place so that all Vermonters can benefit from this transition
