American Lung Association Applauds Adoption of Clean Cars Minnesota

New standards will help address climate change, protect health of Minnesotans

Today, Minnesota Governor Tim Walz announced the finalizing of the Clean Cars Minnesota rules, which will adopt both the zero emission vehicle (ZEV) sales requirements and low emission vehicle (LEV) standards. 

“The American Lung Association welcomes the adoption of the Clean Cars Minnesota rules. Vehicle exhaust is Minnesota’s leading source of air pollution and greenhouse gases,” said Robert Moffitt, Director of Clean Air for the Lung Association. 

“Adopting strong standards like these at the state level is a big step toward addressing climate change and will protect the long-term health of Minnesotans.”

The Clean Cars Minnesota rules will be published in the State Register today. Minnesota joins 14 other states and Washington DC as the 15th state to adopt these standards.
