On June 19, 2018, Governor Hickenlooper signed Executive Order B 2018 006, Maintaining Progress on Clean Vehicles. It directs the Colorado Air Quality Control Commission (AQCC) to consider a proposed rule adopting a California Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) Standard.
This executive order did not direct CDPHE to propose a Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) program, or to mandate the sale of electric vehicles. There was extensive public comment, however, in support of Zero Emission Vehicles at the August 16, 2018, meeting of the Colorado Air Quality Control Commission.
The AQCC requested that a proposed rule be presented in December for its consideration and a future public rulemaking hearing. If adopted, such a Proposed Rule would mandate an increasing percentage of all light-and-medium-duty motor vehicles sold in Colorado to be Zero Emission Vehicles.

The Colorado Air Quality Control Commission appreciates your interest in their consideration of a Zero Emission Vehicle Mandate for Colorado. Please note that comments received prior to the official notice of rulemaking (TBD) will be considered as "general public comment" and will not be included in the hearing record. In order to be included in the record, comments must be submitted during the noticed public comment period.
