Letter: Minnesota should adopt Calififornia clean car standards

The Detroit Lakes Tribune Online ran a story on Feb. 15 addressing the concerns of a few rural legislators regarding the proposed Minnesota Clean Car Act.

Twelve other states have already adopted the California Clean Car Standards. That California came up with a good idea is not the point.

The proposed Minnesota Clean Car Act presents an opportunity to not only act on a good idea, but also to do the right thing.

Minnesotans (and everyone else for that matter) should welcome the notion of driving more energy-efficient vehicles that emit less global warming pollution.

Minnesota should join the other states that have already done so by adopting the California Clean Car Standards. -- Jack Fay, Detroit Lakes
