July 2019 Gasoline Phaseout News

California has appropriated $1.5 million in its 2019-2020 budget for a study of strategies to achieve carbon neutrality in the transportation sector, including the transition to zero-emission light-duty vehicles. This study represents a pioneering effort to plan the phaseout of sales of new gasoline-powered vehicles. Coltura helped organize and lead the coalition that supported the study through its various iterations in the Assembly. Congratulations and thanks to Assemblyman Phil Ting for shepherding this budget item through, and for his gasoline phaseout advocacy.

June 2018 Gasoline Phaseout News

On June 1, Coltura released “Recharge Required,” a report documenting Washington public entities’ non-compliance with a law requiring that all public fleets run 100% on electricity or biofuels to the extent practicable. The white paper documents the failure of Washington cities, counties, universities, and state agencies to comply Washington Law, and has already spurred one state senator to call for hearings on the problem. Recharge Required was covered extensively in media outlets and newspapers in Washington and across the country, including this well-researched article in the Seattle Times. The report’s core recommendation, which calls for public entities to adopt clear “EV First” policies, was publicly seconded by 350.org, Drive Electric Washington, Stand.Earth, Plug In America, and Carbon Washington.
