Rescission of Technical Guidance

DEP ID: 271-5000-001. Title: Employer Trip Reduction Policy. Description: This document is being rescinded because the regulation on which it is based, 25 Pa. Code Chapter 126, Subchapter B and Appendix A, has been rescinded, effective July 14, 2012, published at 42 Pa.B. 4459 (July 14, 2012). The Employer Trip Reduction (ETR) regulation was never implemented as a result of the act of November 16, 1994 (P.L. 614, No. 95) (Act 95), which amended 75 Pa.C.S. (relating to Vehicle Code) to require the Governor to suspend implementation and enforcement of the ETR program until March 31, 1995, or until an alternative program with equivalent emission reductions was developed. The document, the Employer Trip Reduction Policy, is no longer necessary, as the rescission of the regulation eliminates the need for guidance on compliance with the regulation in relation to Act 95. This rescission will have no effect on the operation of air quality programs, because the regulation it is based on has been repealed.

Effective Date: April 10, 2017
