Clean Cars Minnesota

Update to the rulemaking schedule (April 3)

The COVID-19 public health crisis has required the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) to reassess its processes and schedules to ensure the public has adequate time to review and give meaningful input before decisions are made.

MPCA had intended to publish the Notice of Intent to Adopt Rule with a Hearing for the Clean Cars Minnesota rule in the State Register in March 2020. Publishing the Notice also opens a new public comment period and opportunity for Minnesotans to submit feedback. As part of its reassessment, the MPCA has determined that timeline is no longer appropriate and is delaying publication of the rule temporarily.

The MPCA remains committed to this rulemaking and our goal of reducing emissions of greenhouse gases and other air pollutants from transportation. Despite this delay, we are still aiming to complete the rulemaking process by the end of 2020.
