From the article-


The new rules will also require the state agencies only to purchase electric or hybrid vehicles, California’s Department of General Services said in a statement on Friday.

It's the state government of California that won't be buying vehicles from those manufacturers. They will still be sold to private buyers if they want them.

And, I can see why they did it. Those automakers were in favor of reducing emissions requirements, while CA has been trying to make them stronger. And, to tell you the truth, considering the air quality around LA, it kinda makes sense.

If any of you think that CA is going to ban all cars from being sold, even to private buyers, you're nuts. And, there are lots of times that various government agencies decide to either do or not do business with a company. Going against what the state wants is one of them.

That's pretty retarded of them, considering how many times their power grid has been shut off the last month or so.

California went off the rails decades ago. This is simply another nail in their coffin. He again they base their decision not on which cars are the best for the job, the best, value but rather which makes them FEEL GOOD.

Little wonder people are leaving the Golden State in droves. Sad.

It’s retarded that California has its own emissions standards so different than the rest of the country. They are so batshit crazy they will soon ban all internal combustion engines.

We should write a list of all that CA has done.

Boycott states that wont allow pervert men in dresses into the little girls bathrooms.

Refuse to hire any company that helps on building the border wall.

There is a shitload of this stuff calif. has done.

Who cares?
Yeah losing the 5th largest economy in the world is no problem :rolleyes:
Working on that nearly ONE TRILLION dollars in unfunded public debt yet?

It's bearing down on you like a speeding locomotive.

Go ahead and scratch your head

You're one clueless left loon
California funds your red flyover wastelands. Thank them for your roads and for your better gas mileage.
BS you stupid fuck. Go try and snow someone else.

Cali is dangerously close to bankruptcy... much like it's other blue counterpart Illinois

States should not have the right to determine their own standards?
