Input from public meetings and survey

At our public meetings across the state, MPCA staff asked attendees to participate in an interactive exercise to share their thoughts and priorities. The poster asked, “What’s most important to you as we consider the Clean Cars Minnesota rule,” and provided eight potential answers based on early feedback we received about the proposed rule.

MPCA staff gave each participant three dots, and instructed them to distribute the dots between one, two, or three boxes. If participants did not see their views represented among the eight options, they could use a note to share an additional interest or concern with MPCA staff.

The online survey mirrored this exercise, asking the same question and providing the same eight options with an additional “Other” box. If survey respondents did not see their views represented among the eight options, they could use this “Other” box to share additional interests or concerns. We estimate that 1,280 participants in total gave feedback using the interactive posters and online survey.
