Colorado Governor Polis Statement on Air Quality Control Commission Adoption of a Zero-Emission Vehicle Standard

DENVER – Governor Jared Polis released a statement today after the Air Quality Control Commission voted 8-1 to approve a zero-emission vehicle standard for Colorado.

“In one of my first executive orders as governor, I asked for the Department of Public Health and Environment to increase the choices Coloradans have when it comes to purchasing electric cars by increasing the number of models available in our state, and we got it done within a few short months,” said Governor Jared Polis. “It’s only the beginning. Colorado must continue to reduce smog and increase consumer choice.”

Earlier this year, Gov. Polis released a roadmap to 100 percent renewable energy and bold climate action which included the bold goal of more zero-emission vehicles and commuting options.
