Clean Transportation Standard Work Group
The 2023 legislature established the Clean Transportation Standard Work Group to prepare recommendations for implementing a Clean Transportation Standard (CTS), including development of performance-based incentives to reduce carbon pollution from all transportation fuels including gasoline, diesel, biofuels, and electricity. The work group will be jointly convened by the Commissioners of Agriculture, Commerce, Transportation, and the Pollution Control Agency.
The goal of a CTS is to significantly reduce transportation emissions, create new jobs, attract new investments, and reduce air and water pollution in Minnesota. The work group will make recommendations on fuel pathways and determine impacts to jobs, fuel prices, rural and agricultural economic development, and environmental justice for legislation in the 2024 legislative session to reduce the carbon intensity (CI) of all fuels used in transportation.
By Feb. 1, 2024, the work group will develop recommendations for structuring a CTS that requires the aggregate carbon intensity of transportation fuel supplied to Minnesota be reduced to at least 25% below the 2018 baseline level by the end of 2030, by 75% by the end of 2040, and by 100% by the end of 2050.
- Thursday, Nov. 30, 2023, 1-3 p.m. CST
