“15 States Pledge Emissions-Free Truck Sales By 2050”

“Fifteen states and the city of Washington, D.C., on Tuesday announced an agreement that aims to make all new truck and bus sales emission-free by 2050.

The effort is intended to severely curtail greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles by getting governments to require that sales within their borders be of electric trucks and buses.

As an interim goal, those signing the memorandum of understanding would have 30 percent of new truck and bus sales in 2030 be emission free.”
