Control on Truck Idling Would Provide One Step Toward Cleaning the Air for Central Pennsylvania

Editorial

Excerpt: “It’s not rocket science to draw a connection between poor air quality in this region and the large trucking and warehousing industries.

A proposed regulation by the state Environmental Quality Board to control truck idling is a good step, both statewide and in central Pennsylvania.

Trucks could idle their engines for no more than five minutes out of every hour under the regulation, which does not need legislative approval but is subject to public hearings and scrutiny from the Independent Regulatory Review Commission.”
