RNG Coalition urges Michigan senate to hold Clean Fuel Standard hearing

The group says passing SB 275 would allow Michigan to support climate goals and benefit their state economy.

The Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas (RNG Coalition) released a statement urging Michigan lawmakers to conduct a hearing on Senate Bill 275, a critical Clean Fuel Standard (CFS) legislation, which would address greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Michigan’s transportation sector, a significant contributor to the state’s carbon footprint. RNG Coalition says that proven success of CFS programs in U.S. states like California, where consumption of petroleum-based diesel has plummeted by over 50% within just a few years, underscores the need for a similar program in Michigan. 

RNG Coalition Legislative Policy Manager Dana Adams outlined the need for an SB 275 hearing in a letter sent to Michigan Senate Energy Committee Chairman Sean McCann. “While last year’s Clean Energy Package addresses long-term emissions, it does not go far enough to address near- and medium-term greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions,” Adams said in the letter. “The transportation sector is one of the largest GHG contributors in Michigan and addressing this emissions source is imperative if we hope to make meaningful near-term GHG reductions.”
