It’s been almost three months since Colorado’s governor signed an executive order directing state air quality regulators to begin the rulemaking process to adopt California’s “Low Emission Vehicle” (LEV) auto emissions standards. But surprise! The governor’s regulators at the Air Quality Control Commission (AQCC) are changing direction and instead moving to adopt the far more radical and costly California “Zero Emission Vehicle” (ZEV) standards.

Gov. Hickenlooper recently signed an executive order directing his appointees at the Air Quality Control Commission to promulgate a new rule adopting California’s Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) standards for new vehicle sales in Colorado beginning in 2022. If successful, the governor’s plan will very likely cost Coloradans billions of dollars in higher vehicle prices and taxpayer subsidies.
