Emissions have been a hot topic especially as of recent. With California having some of the strictest laws regarding emissions it’s no wonder that they are one of the leaders that head the fight on emissions in the US.
California officials stated Friday that state agencies will stop purchasing vehicles from manufacturers who don’t meet their emission laws. Currently GM, Toyota and Fiat Chrysler are some of the automakers who haven’t met these standards. Ford, Honda, BMW AG and Volkswagen AG are among the automakers that agree to California’s strict restrictions.

California’s Department of General Services also stated that they will only allow the state to purchase vehicles that are hybrids or evs (Electric Vehicles.) There are some exceptions included for public safety vehicles. “Car makers that have chosen to be on the wrong side of history will be on the losing end of California’s buying power,” California Governor Gavin Newsom said in a statement.
If some of the automakers get up to their standards there might be a possibility that California will reconsider working with them.
How do you feel about the emission laws? Are they too strict.
