HB 3022 Halts DEQ rulemaking

Died in Committee
Status (overview) of bill:https://olis.oregonlegislature.gov/liz/2023R1/Measures/Overview/HB3022

This bill prohibits the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality from adopting or enforcing rules or standards related to motor vehicle fuels or emissions unless authorized by the Legislative Assembly.

Oregon’s Environmental Quality Commission recently adopted rules which will require all new cars sold in Oregon to be zero-emission vehicles by 2035.  This rule making exceeds the authority of an administrative agency. This is a major new policy that requires representation, deliberation and debate in the Legislature.
