Two climate bills that did not pass in 2019 are likely to be reintroduced in 2020:
HB 1110, Clean Fuels: this bill is proposed to limit the greenhouse gas emissions per unit of transportation fuel energy to 10 percent below 2017 levels by 2028 and 20 percent below 2017 levels by 2035. It passed the house but was returned by the senate and did not get out of the rules committee. There is strong opposition by petroleum interests.
SB 5811, Zero Emissions Vehicles: proposes to adopt California zero emission vehicle program regulations. (Note: California requires 22% of new vehicles sold in 2025 to be zero emissions vehicles, and there is a proposal for 100% by 2040.) It also encourages utilities to build a charging infrastructure, and extends incentives for purchase of EVs.
