In order to maintain progress in reducing greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles sold in Colorado, the Coloardo Department of Public Health and Environment shall:

  • Develop a rule to establish a Colorado LEV program, which incorporates the requirements of the California LEV program; and
  • Propose that rule to the Coloardo Air Quality Control Commission during its August 2018 meeting for possible adoption into the Coloardo Code of Regulations by December 30, 2018

Since then, suppliers have invested heavily in research, development, equipment and talent to make sure automakers could reach those targets. Pulling a U-turn on fuel economy standards betrays those efforts.
