S. 1265, The Diesel Emissions Reduction Act of 2005
- This item is from the 109th Congress (2005-2006) and is no longer current. Comments, voting, and wiki editing have been disabled, and the cost/savings estimate has been frozen.
S. 1265 would authorize the appropriation of funds for each of fiscal years 2007 through 2011 to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to support grants and loans to states and other organizations working to reduce emissions from diesel engines. Under the bill, EPA would establish a technology transfer program including nonfinancial incentives to promote the use of technologies that reduce diesel emissions. The bill also would require EPA to work with the Department of Commerce to inform foreign countries of the potential of technology used or developed to reduce emissions in the United States.
