Description

Section 1 of the bill requires the executive director of the
department of transportation to adopt rules, no later than December 31,
2021, to establish a program that allows preferential access to managed

lanes for low-emission vehicles (LEVs) regardless of the number of
vehicle occupants. The rules may:
  • Require a LEV owner to pay an annual fee to enroll the
owner's LEV in the program;
  • Limit the number of LEVs eligible for the program;
  • Limit the number of years that a LEV is eligible for a
program;
  • Treat different classes of LEVs differently;
  • Allow preferential access to all or only a subset of managed
lanes; and
  • Allow either free or reduced toll access to any given toll
lane or high occupancy toll lane.
Section 1 also defines the terms low-emission vehicle and managed
lane as well as other terms used in the definition of low-emission
vehicle.
Section 2 repeals the statutory authority for an existing program,
which is expiring on May 31, 2020, due to a change in federal law, under
which a limited number of low-emission vehicles are allowed free access
to managed lanes regardless of the number of vehicle occupants.
