Texas Governor Abbott signs pre-owned natural gas vehicle legislation

On Wednesday, June 9, Governor Greg Abbott signed HB 963. The Bill expands the current Texas NaturalGas Vehicle Grant Program under the Texas Emission Reduction Plan (TERP) to include new or used naturalgas vehicles. The bill stipulates the pre-owned vehicle must be at least a model year 2017 or no more than six years older than the current model year. Susan Shifflett, TXNGVA, states: “We appreciate Governor Abbott, our sponsors: Representative J.M. Lozano, Representative Brooks Landgraf, Representative Alex Dominguez, Representative Ryan Guillen and Senator Judith Zaffirini, and their staff for their support and hard work on HB 963. This Program will be the first of its kind in the United States. It provides larger fleets with a marketplace for their retired naturalgas vehicles while financially helping small business owners get into newer, clean burning naturalgas vehicles.”
