New Jersey Governor Signs Clean Car Bill

Bill will also require auto manufacturers to produce approximately 40,000 low-emission vehicles, such as gas electric hybrid cars, by 2009

An initiative that environmental groups and state officials say will help clean up our air is on its way.

Gov. James E. McGreevey signed the Clean Cars Act into law last week after the bill passed both houses of the Legislature during their final sessions. The measure will bring California’s low-emission standards for vehicles to New Jersey by the end of the decade.

In addition to California, New Jersey will join New York, Massachusetts and Maine, states that have already have similar laws on the books.
