Proposed Amendments to the Air Pollution Control Regulations, Low Emission Vehicle Regulations

19 September 2018

The Agency is proposing an amendment to its low emission vehicle (LEV) rules, which incorporate by reference California’s motor vehicle emission standard regulations.  Vermont first adopted California’s vehicle emission standards in 1996, and the Agency periodically amends its LEV rules to remain consistent with California’s emission standards. California is amending its rules to clarify that vehicle manufacturers may not substitute compliance with federal greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions standards in order to comply with California GHG emissions standards. These amendments will incorporate this change into the Vermont LEV rules.
