DNREC's Stance

Section 177 of the Clean Air Act requires that Delaware standards must be “identical to the California standards.” The purpose of the amendments to 7 DE Admin. Code 1140 is to update the adoption by reference of California’s Advance Clean Car II (ACC II) low emission vehicle and greenhouse gas standards and add the requirements for zero emitting vehicles for model year 2027 and beyond. Public hearings provide a formal platform for the public to hear the details of specific matters. They may submit comments before or after the hearing to be incorporated into a formal hearing record.

WRITTEN and VERBAL COMMENT TIPS

Choose ONE Topic per email/letter/comment to address to DNREC.



SAMPLE TOPICS

DNREC, I do not support the EV mandate that is to be regulated by DNREC.


Delaware air has never been cleaner and Delaware is already fully compliant with Environmental Protection Agency standards. Delaware is NOT California, yet the State legislature has delegated their authority to regulate specific vehicle mandates to DNREC, which plans to follow California EV mandate laws.


It is unconstitutional for the legislature to delegate the authority of law making that is VESTED in the legislature. Article 2 Section 1: The legislative power of this state shall be vested in a general assembly, which shall consist of a Senate and House of representatives.


Delaware air has never been cleaner and Delaware is already fully compliant with Environmental Protection Agency standards.


Many of our citizens are one fixed incomes, are just starting their families and careers, and some are small business owners, who cannot afford the high-ticket price of EV's and this cost should not be redistributed to other Delaware taxpayers.


There are other options for clean vehicular emissions, such as hydrogen fuel cells.


Living in Sussex County, we are vulnerable to evacuation orders and would be stranded if EV's were mandated.


Mandating EV's will cost me my livelihood.
