DOT’s Federal Highway Administration Proposed Rule for Transportation Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction

On July 6, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) announced a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for states and municipalities to track and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The new rule would establish a national framework for tracking state-by-state progress by adding a new GHG performance management measure to the existing FHWA national performance measures to help states track performance, make more informed investment decisions, and create a system under which State DOTs and MPOs would set their own declining targets for on-road greenhouse gas emissions from roadway travel on the National Highway System. The proposed rule would require State DOTs and MPOs to report biennially on their progress in meeting the declining targets they establish and require FHWA to assess significant progress toward achieving those targets.  The proposed rule is expected to publish in the Federal Register next week. The press release can be found here and the proposed rule here.


DOT’s proposed Standards for EV Charging Network 

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration announced a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on proposed minimum standards and requirements for projects funded under the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program, which is a part of the $5 billion made available to states and territories over the next five years under the IIJA. These minimum standards are intended to help ensure the national EV charging network is user-friendly, reliable, and accessible to all Americans, and interoperable between different charging companies, with similar payment systems, pricing information, charging speeds, and more. The proposed rule would establish the groundwork for states and territories to build federally funded charging station projects across a national EV charging network. The standards also establish workforce requirements for installation, maintenance, and operations to increase the safety and reliability of charging station function and use and create and support jobs in communities across the country. The Notice of Proposed rulemaking can be found here and comments must be received by August 22, 2022.
