Illinois Democrats can’t seem to restrain themselves from sibling rivalry with their Leftist bigger sister – California. Whatever they do, Illinois Democrats do. 

The latest appears to be banning gas-powered cars by 2035. 

Guess there are no auto drivers in California that live in high rise condos and apartment buildings that park on the streets like there are here in Illinois. 

Anyway, from The Daily Caller: 

The California Air Resources Board is set to finalize an expansive plan to ban the sale of new gasoline-powered cars by 2035 on Thursday, which may accelerate the national transition to electric vehicles (EVs), The New York Times reported.

The state’s ban will require 100% of new cars sold in California by 2035 to be free of fossil fuel emissions, up from the current 12%. Interim targets require 35% of vehicles sold in the state by 2026 to produce zero emissions, rising to 68% by 2030, according to the NYT. The zero-emissions car mandate, which will only allow electric vehicles to be purchased, may be adopted by at least 12 additional states fairly soon, while five additional states which already adhere to California’s more comprehensive vehicle pollution reduction program are anticipated to do so in about a year.

  1. It is not zero emissions. The process of manufacturing causes emissions. They want to force the poor deeper into poverty, eliminate their ability to own any kind of vehicle while the rich jet off to play polo and jet back home.
