Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul of New York announced they will be following California's lead and banning the sale of gas-powered cars and light trucks by 2035.
All cars, pickup trucks and SUVs sold in the state of California must be classified as “zero-emissions vehicles” according to a press release. New rules are being implemented by the state's Department of Environmental Conservation that will require 35% of state vehicle sales to consist of electric cars by 2026, rising to 68% by 2030.

“With sustained state and federal investments, our actions are incentivizing New Yorkers, local governments, and businesses to make the transition to electric vehicles,” Hochul said.
California took the same steps in August.
“We had to wait for California to take a step because there’s some federal requirement that California had to go first,” Hochul said during a press conference Thursday.
