Are lawmakers serious about cutting emissions? Here’s one way to find out.

The trucking industry has made massive strides in reducing tailpipe emissions over the past 35 years thanks to innovation and achievable regulatory targets and timelines:
✅We’ve cut harmful NOx and particulate matter emissions by 99%.
✅We’ve eliminated virtually all sulfur-dioxide emissions.
✅Between 2014 and 2027, we stand to cut 1.37 billion metric tons of CO2.

The problem? Not nearly enough of these newer and cleaner trucks are on the road today because of a century-old federal excise tax (FET) on heavy-duty trucks that penalizes trucking companies for upgrading their equipment.
