Spencer Platt/Getty Images New York passed a law last week that will outlaw the sale of new passenger vehicles that produce emissions by the year 2035.
The bill was signed into law by Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) on September 8 after it passed in both the New York State Assembly and the state Senate. According to the new legislation, all passenger vehicles, including trucks and cars will be required to produce zero emissions by 2035.
Details on the bill have been released on the state of New York’s website: The Governor signed legislation (A.4302/S.2758), setting a goal for all new passenger cars and trucks sold in New York State to be zero-emissions by 2035.

The bill also aims to end the sale of new medium-duty and heavy-duty vehicles that produce emissions by the year 2045.
