Bill to politicize Low Emission Vehicle Program tabled
HB 5, which would require the Delaware Legislature to approve DNREC regulations to reduce pollution from vehicles, was tabled on June 6, 2013 at the request of the House Natural Resources Committee Chair and the DNREC Secretary. The Sierra Club opposed this bill, because it would have politicized the regulatory process that DNREC has been given the authority to develop by Delaware law.
