The above video is a snippet of Chris Spears, President American Trucking Associations (ATA), testimony on Capitol Hill regarding the impracticality of California’s sweeping proposal to require zero emission trucks starting in 2024.

Before you listen, let’s review a few facts:

  • Trucking is not opposed to clean air. Quite the contrary, the trucking industry worked the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to jointly develop the SmartWay program.
  • The industry worked with equipment manufacturers to reduce emission, and 98.5% of all emissions have been removed from a truck’s tailpipe.
  • Today, sixty trucks emit what one truck emitted back in 1988.

It is not a matter of IF we get to zero, it is a matter of WHEN.
