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.
But where's Della?
