Washington State's 'Clean Cars 2030' Bill, ban sale of ICE vehicles

Washington State's both houses passed a bill could make Washington, the first state to ban the sale, purchase or resistration of any new non-electric cars in the state beginning 2030. California, Massachusetts and Canada's Quebec province planned to have similar bans by 2035. General Motors planned to stop producing ICE-powered cars in 2035. This WA registration law applies to all light-duty vehicles 2030 or newer, so you can't import newest ICE-powered vehicles bought from other states. It is not a firm mandate, because it is contingent on the state also adopting a tax on vehicle miles traveled. This measure to help pay for new transportation and electric-charging infrastructure, according to the bill. Washington State is very aggressive in their plans to boost the sale and accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles.
