New Jersey has become the latest state to implement EPA SNAP rules, as Governor Phil Murphy has signed Senate Bill 3919 into law.
New Jersey joins California, Washington and Vermont as the states who have formally adopted a SNAP-based program to phase down HFCs. This bill will make certain HFCs unacceptable for use, and follows the path outlined in EPA Significant New Alternative Policy (SNAP) rules 20 and 21. SNAP Rules 20 and 21 were partially vacated by the D.C. Circuit Court, a decision which the EPA continues to review. The HVACR industry awaits the EPA rewrite, expected in 2020.
