Why is this important?  Virginia Auto Dealers Association supports this legislation that did not include California’s zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) mandate.

How will this be important? New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Washington, Oregon, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, and Colorado have adopted California’s standards. Nevada is considering it.
