Ultra-leftist California Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom has banned certain gas engines.
Newsom “signed Assembly Bill No. 1346 into law on Saturday, which moves to outlaw the sale of gas-powered equipment that uses small motors, primarily impacting the state’s landscaping industry,” reports Breitbart News.
Per the article:
This law follows Newsom’s 2020 executive order that prohibits the sale of all gas-powered vehicles by 2035. According to the AP, “state officials say running a gas-powered leaf blower for one hour emits the same amount of pollution as driving a 2017 Toyota Camry from Los Angeles to Denver, a distance of about 1,100 miles.” The law prohibits the sale of small gas-powered off-road engines on or after January 1, 2024, or as soon as state regulators determine it is “feasible,” whichever date is later.
“This Legislature hates fuel, which is very sustainable,” said Republican California State Senator Brian Dahle. “It’s easy to access. And when the power is off, you can still use it. You can still run a generator to keep your freezer going, to keep your medical devices going. But when your battery’s dead and there’s no power on, you have nothing.”
