The Politics of New York’s Ban on Gas-Powered Cars (Podcast)

Sept. 15, 2021, 8:48 PM

New York’s new governor, Kathy Hochul (D), just took a major step toward an all-electric future by signing a bill that would ban the sale of gas-powered cars in her state by 2035.

On this episode of our weekly environmental podcast, Parts Per Billion, we talk with Bloomberg Law’s New York correspondent, Keshia Clukey, about why Hochul signed this bill so quickly after taking office. Keshia also talks about how lawmakers are hoping their neighbors enact similar laws so that New Yorkers aren’t tempted to shop for cars across state lines.
