The next step in the rulemaking process is publication of the official Notice of Intent to Adopt Rule With a Hearing for the Clean Cars Minnesota rule in the State Register. This is the agency’s formal legal notice to let Minnesotans know that the MPCA is planning to adopt a new rule and we would like to hear your feedback and comments.
MPCA is hosting a series of meetings to assist in developing the rule and our technical analysis of the rule's potential effects. Meeting materials and a recording of each session are posted below.
