On Monday, June 14th the U.S. Environment Committee for the U.S. Conference of Mayors voted unanimously to include the resolution to include diesel clean-up measures as a near-term climate mitigation strategy.
Additionally, this calls on Congress to reauthorize the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act for an additional 5 years, and to seize other opportunities to fund diesel pollution reductions in upcoming climate legislation, transportation legislation and other appropriate legislation.
This means that 1,026 mayors in the U.S. recognize diesel pollution reduction as a viable way to mitigate climate change. It also boosts support for our national Diesel Clean-Up Campaign, and the NC Clean Diesel Campaign that Clean Air Carolina operates, and funding to reduce diesel pollution.
