Establishes standard for carbon intensity and other characteristics of diesel fuel used in on-road motor vehicles.
Directs Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to study feasibility of phasing out fossil diesel fuels with high
carbon intensity value as transportation fuels in Oregon. Requires study to examine impacts of requiring a carbon
intensity value of 60 grams of carbon dioxide equivalent per megajoule or less for onroad diesel fuel. Requires DEQ, in consultation with State Department of Agriculture, the Oregon Department of Administrative Services, the Department of Transportation or any other relevant state agency, to: study the price and availability of renewable fuels with carbon intensity value of 60 grams of carbon dioxide equivalent per megajoule or less in state; study incentives for increasing availability of renewable fuels; develop estimates of current and future demand for onroad diesel fuels, including estimates for specific regions of the state; analyze effects of removing petroleum diesel from marketplace on Clean Fuels Program; and analyze cost difference between renewable
fuels. Requires DEQ to submit findings in report, which may include recommendations for legislation, to interim
legislative committees related to the energy and climate no later than September 15, 2024.
