New Jersey banning sale of new gasoline-powered vehicles by 2035

New Jersey will prohibit the sale of new gasoline-powered vehicles by 2035 as part of an effort to improve air quality and reduce planet-warming pollutants, officials announced Tuesday.
A rule that will take effect Jan. 1 commits the state to an eventual move toward zero-emission vehicles, the state Department of Environmental Protection said in a news release. It is one of a growing number of states to do so, including California, Vermont, New York, Washington, Oregon, Massachusetts, Virginia, Rhode Island, Maryland and Connecticut, according to Coltura, a Seattle-based nonprofit advocating for an end to gasoline vehicle use.

        This is a significant step towards reducing carbon emissions and combating climate change. This move will not only help improve air quality but also reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. It's encouraging to see states taking proactive measures to address the urgent need for sustainable transportation options.
