California Bill in the Works to Banish Gasoline Cars by 2040

by Ryan Beene and Dana Hull (Bloomberg)  Assemblymember Ting says he will introduce proposal next month; Only ‘clean’ cars could be registered by DMV under bill: Ting  —  A California lawmaker wants to put the state alongside ChinaFrance and the U.K. and have its legislature consider a ban on vehicles powered by fossil fuels. 

California Assemblymember Phil Ting, a Democrat who is chairman of the chamber’s budget committee, said he plans to introduce a bill that, starting in 2040, would allow the state’s motor vehicles department to register only “clean” vehicles that emit no carbon dioxide, such as battery-electric or hydrogen fuel-cell cars.

Ting isn’t the first official from the state with the largest market for new vehicle sales in the U.S. to openly consider a ban on internal-combustion engines.
