Environmental Policy in Delaware
Climate Change, Environmental Justice, Zero Emission Vehicles, and More
The 152nd General Assembly is in session, and all indications point to an active year for environmental legislation. In 2022, climate change and environmental justice bills were introduced but did not pass. Sponsors of those bills are expected to introduce new bills this year, and there is a high likelihood that some form of legislation will be enacted. Other environmental bills have been suggested by legislators for introduction later in this session. DNREC is also active with several regulatory initiatives, including the adoption of California’s zero-emission vehicle standards.
