Miguel Figliozzi, Civil and Environmental Engineering faculty, has been selected to chair a study group that will assist the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality in developing a report, including recommendations for the Oregon Legislature, regarding truck efficiency, reduced idling, and emissions. This report will be submitted to interim environment and natural resource legislative committees by October 2010 for their consideration and any possible action during the 2011 Legislative session. The 2009 Oregon Legislature adopted House Bill 2186, which directed DEQ to study potential requirements regarding the maintenance or retrofitting of medium- and heavy-duty trucks to reduce aerodynamic drag and otherwise reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
