(Aitkin, MN) — The Aitkin County Board of Commissioners at their Tuesday, February 9th meeting met with Brain Martinson with the Association of Minnesota Counties on the State’s Clean Cars emission standards.

Martinson, AMC’s Environmental and Natural Resources Policy Analyst, relayed background on past efforts to implement vehicle standards.

The public does have the opportunity to voice their opinion on the standards from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.

Martinson did note the Legislature is making an effort at changing statutes in order to have more control on the legislation.

These standards set by the State of California that Minnesota is looking at adopting, would not change if California updates their standards in the future.
