New Jersey, New York, and Massachusetts Adopt CARB’S ACT Rule

New Jersey, New York, and Massachusetts all adopted the California Air Resources Board (CARB)'s Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) and fleet reporting rules between December 20 and 30, 2021.

The ACT rule requires manufacturers with vehicles weighing 8,500 pounds or more to participate in a credit/deficit program that aims to increase the number of zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) sold in the state beginning in 2025 through 2035, while the fleet requirement rule sets a one-time reporting requirement to collect information about the in-state operation of fleets with vehicles weighing 8,500 pounds or more.
New Jersey, New York, and Massachusetts are among the 15 states and the District of Columbia that signed onto a joint memorandum of understanding (MOU) agreeing to advance and accelerate the market for electric medium- and heavy-duty vehicles with an interim 30 percent ZEVs sales by 2030 and 100 percent by 2050.

TRALA anticipates that all of the remaining states that signed onto this MOU will continue to adopt CARB's clean trucking standards over the next year.
