New Hampshire Legislature Kills Bill to Adopt Internal Combustion Engine Ban

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

ICEThe New Hampshire House of Representatives overwhelmingly voted to defeat a SEMA-opposed bill which would have required the Granite State to adopt California’s low- and zero- emissions motor-vehicle standards and ban the sale of new gas- and diesel-powered motor vehicles starting in 2035.

SEMA believes that New Hampshire’s residents, not the government, should decide what vehicles are best for them and their families.

New Hampshire’s rejection of California’s vehicle emissions rules comes on the heels of Colorado proposing a modified version of the Golden State’s standards that would not include an internal combustion engine ban.
