Buying a cleaner car is THE BEST thing an individual can do to improve our air quality. That means buying a car with a Smog Rating of 8 or higher. But these cars are notoriously hard to get in Utah.
Last legislative session, Action Utah spearheaded the Zero Emission Vehicle Program bill (HB 479) by Rep. Steve Eliason (R-Sandy), which would have given Utah consumers access to greater choices and availability of electric vehicle models on auto dealer lots and at lower prices.
