NAFA Urges California Officials To Deny Fleet Rule Request

November 23, 2004

In a letter to the California Air Resources Board (ARB), the National Association of Fleet Administrators (NAFA) urged that the ARB deny three requests made by the South Coast Air Quality Management District that ARB submit the district's "Fleet Rules" to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.The requests were for a determination that the Fleet Rules are within the scope of previous waivers of preemption under Section 209(b) of the federal Clean Air Act, according to the NAFA Fleet Focus e-mail newsletter on November 17."NAFA Members in California believe that emission rules should be truly fuel neutral and result in costs that are proportionate to improvement in air quality," said NAFA Executive Director David Lefever in the letter to the ARB. "The Fleet Rules impose unnecessary cost burdens on local government fleets and private fleets; prevent fleets from selecting performance-based vehicle and engine technologies, such as the clean-diesel technologies; and have no appreciable impact on either air quality or use of natural gas vehicles in Southern California."
