PMTA is pleased to pass the news on to our members that the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has published notice in the PA Bulletin that it has suspended enforcement of its Heavy-Duty Diesel Emissions Control Program requiring California Air Recourses Board (CARB) certification of trucks. This announcement is effective beginning November 8, 2021. The notice is posted here: https://www.pacodeandbulletin.gov/Display/pabull?file=/secure/pabulletin/data/vol51/51-45/1847.html
This means that from this date forward until at least July 31, 2023, members buying new trucks in Pennsylvania will NOT be subject to costly warranty or proposed emissions requirements under CARB, including the 2022 CARB warranty provision PMTA has been advocating to suspend.
PMTA and several of its members will be testifying on this issue in a hearing of the state House Environmental Resources and Energy Committee on Monday, November 8 at 9:30 am. The hearing will be livestreamed here: http://www.pahousegop.com/livestreams.
