Environment Department and City of Albuquerque to host Clean Cars NM meeting

Albuquerque, NM (KKOB) –The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) and the City of Albuquerque will host a virtual public engagement kick-off meeting in anticipation of rulemaking proceedings to adopt clean car rules in New Mexico. The public meeting is at 5 p.m. Wednesday, July 21, 2021.
Clean car rules reduce emissions from the transportation sector through making more low-emission and zero-emission passenger vehicles available to consumers. With many New Mexicans frequently using vehicles for long trips, these rules will be especially impactful and are expected to eliminate nearly 2 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 – the same as taking 200,000 cars off the road for an entire year.
This initial public meeting will provide more information on the joint NMED/City effort to bring clean car rules to New Mexico, including how the rules work and an overview of the rulemaking process. The meeting also includes the opportunity for the public to ask questions and make statements.
Public engagement and participation is critical to the success of any regulatory agency, and both NMED and the City are committed to providing opportunities for New Mexicans to make their voices heard throughout this process. Sign up to receive Clean Cars New Mexico email updates here.
