Land Transport (Clean Vehicles) Amendment Bill

Introduced on Sept 8. The bill intends to  reduce carbon dioxide emissions from imported light vehicles. It applies an emissions standard to imports of new and used light vehicles, a “feebate” system with subsidies for cleaner vehicles paid for through penalties on those with higher emissions and new vehicle labelling requirements. The policy has been widely publicised changes in the bill from then include a later starting date (aside from clean car subsidies) to April 2022 and more stringent regulation around emissions standards of imports. First reading on Sept 21 with National and ACT opposed. Land Transport (Clean Vehicles) Amendment Bill
