Chapter 173-442 WAC – Clean Air Rule
We repealed Chapter 173-442 WAC, Clean Air Rule. The rule is no longer necessary because the functions have been preempted and replaced by the 2021 Climate Commitment Act. In Spring 2021, the Legislature passed the Climate Commitment Act, which explicitly provides authority to regulate transportation fuel providers. In addition, the Climate Commitment Act preempts the provisions of Chapter 173-442 WAC and directs Ecology to repeal the Clean Air Rule. Ecology is using the expedited rulemaking process to repeal the Clean Air Rule.
