California to Require Half of All Heavy Trucks Sold by 2035 to Be Electric.

The state is setting strict limits to try to eliminate carbon dioxide emissions from transportation, the sector of the American economy that generates the most greenhouse gases.
WASHINGTON — The Biden administration on Friday granted California the legal authority to require that half of all garbage trucks, tractor-trailers, cement mixers and other heavy vehicles sold in the state must be all-electric by 2035, an aggressive plan designed to clean up the worst polluters on the road.
The pioneering truck rule goes beyond federal requirements, which is why the state needed permission from the administration to enact it. It comes on the heels of an ambitious regulation passed last year by California that requires all new passenger vehicles sold in the state to be electric by the same target year, 2035.

          This is a significant and commendable step towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector, which is a major contributor to the climate crisis.

                2035 is quite too far but given that it's a total transition,it sounds okey.
