Vermont seems to have geared up to reduce greenhouse gases in a concrete way. It approved stricter standards for vehicle emissions, a major source of greenhouse gases. The standards led five other Northeastern states working on the same rules. All 2009 and later model cars sold in Vermont will be required to meet higher fuel efficiency standards to reduce emissions such as carbon dioxide. This is what the changes by the Legislature’s Administrative Rules Committee mean. To keep pace with California, New York, Massachusetts, Maine, Connecticut and Rhode Island also have been moving to adopt the new carbon-reduction rules. Congratulations! The Administrative Rules Committee. You have created a paradigm for other US countries.
