On September 14, senior government officials from the states of California, Baja California and Baja California Sur (the Commission of the Californias) met with the goal of establishing ties among key government officials and identifying next steps for Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEVs).

 

Officials explored the need for expanded binational cooperation to address emerging cross-border issues, including barriers and opportunities associated with the California Air Resources Board’s recently approved Advanced Clean Car II (ACCII) regulatory mandate, and the goal “that 100 percent of medium and heavy-duty vehicles in the State be zero emission by 2045 for all operations and where feasible and by 2035 for drayage trucks.”
