Gov. Brown Signs Bill Extending Requirement for Funding of Clean HD Trucks

On October 10, Governor Brown signed AB1073, which extends the requirement for funding of early deployment of clean heavy-duty trucks as part of California’s Clean Truck, Bus and Off-Road Vehicle program. The bill was sponsored by Eduardo Garcia, whose actions in the legislature have shown his support for growth of the RNG industry. 

This bill was supported by the RNG Coalition, but opposed by some staff at the Air Resources Board because it mandates that funds go toward natural gas vehicle deployment. RNG Coalition staff interprets this as a positive signal to our industry from the Administration.
