Virginia Gov. Says No to California Emissions Plan


Virginia Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin vowed to block all efforts to ban gas-powered vehicles in Virginia. Reporter Bernie Bennett has more details.

His declaration comes after California’s Air Resources Board voted Thursday to implement an executive order by California Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom that phases out gas-powered vehicles and bans the sale of them beginning in 2035. Virginia passed a law in 2021 that set the Commonwealth on a path to adopt California’s emissions standards.

Youngkin wrote in a statement posted to Twitter, “In an effort to turn Virginia into California, liberal politicians who previously ran our government sold Virginia out by subjecting Virginia drivers to California vehicle laws.”

Youngkin continued, “I am already at work to prevent this ridiculous edict from being forced on Virginians.”
