Public Can Comment on Idling Bill

By Andrea Ciccocioppo

Excerpt: “The public will have the opportunity to weigh in on a proposed statewide idling reduction regulation designed to improve air quality and save gallons of diesel fuel.

The American Lung Association lists the Harrisburg-Carlisle-Lebanon area as No. 14 in the nation among metropolitan areas ‘most polluted by short-term particle pollution.’

The new regulation advocated by the Clean Air Board of Central Pennsylvania would limit the amount of time a diesel-powered commercial motor vehicle can idle its engine to no more than five minutes in a 60-minute period.”
