Delaware to Adopt California Emisions Regulations

Delaware to Adopt California Emisions Regulations

The politicians in Delaware are trying to become the east coast version of California when it comes to emissions laws. Go 'First State'.

I wish these laws didn't justify themselves by appealing to climate change. Urban pollution is enough of a reason and non-controversial. Using climate change as justification just invites challenges.

Delaware, very Shakespearean -"Much ado about nothing." CA is the 800 pound gorilla, it is such an important auto market, that in the beginning, they made two emission standards: CA and a 49 state standard car. Due to certification expense, they dropped the 49 state standard and make a 50 state car that adheres to the CA standards.

Now, I wonder if they are going the whole 9 yards and adopt the CA's AQMD fuel standards. My guess is a big no.

We are very small in Delaware but because of our wonderful court system everyone wants to incorporate here.

As far as I know we have a total of 5 model S and one roadster in the state. I know many of you see five in your work parking lots each day.

We on the east coast are slow adopters but I am hoping that will change.

But we have one Tesla claim to fame despite our small size. George B went to school at the U of D and had his business career start at the local mall's Gap store.
