Following today’s vote by the Colorado Air Quality Control Commission (AQCC) to adopt the Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) and Low-NOx rules, organizations including: Womxn from the Mountain, GreenLatinos Colorado, Mi Familia Vota, Rocky Mountain NAACP, WRA, Healthy Air and Water Colorado, Conservation Colorado, Natural Resources Defense Council, Ceres, Colorado Sierra Club, Earthworks, and Earthjustice among others released the following statement:

“We as a coalition of advocates, activists, allies and community members are glad that the AQCC voted to adopt Clean Trucks regulations including ACT and Low-NOx rules. This is by no means the end of our fight to make Colorado’s air safer to breathe and to reduce the toxic pollution accelerating the worst effects of climate change, but it is a step in the right direction. To meet the state’s emissions reduction targets, we need those in positions of power to hold polluters accountable to the rules that already exist; our economy and future generations of Coloradans depend on it. We look forward to the implementation of ACT and the work still to come.”
