S1636, An Act reducing permitted idling times

Senator Brownsberger submitted the following written testimony to the Joint Committee on Transportation.

TO:                  Joint Committee on Transportation

FROM:           Senator William N. Brownsberger

RE:                  Senate Bill S1636

DATE:            October 29, 2013

I am writing in favor of S1636, An Act reducing permitted idling times.

S1636 would reduce the lawful length of vehicle idling time from five minutes to two minutes, thereby limiting exhaust and carbon emissions. This simple measure would have a positive environmental impact.

I hope you will report this bill favorably.

View testimony.
