HB 1826 - DIGEST

Finds that emissions from automobiles are a primary source of air quality degradation in the state of Washington.

Finds that motor vehicle fuels, such as ethanol and biodiesel, that are blended with agricultural products burn cleaner and result in cleaner air for the densely populated urban areas of the state. Production of the crops necessary to produce some of the cleaner burning blended fuels could serve as an alternative market for Washington's farm families and economically benefit the rural areas of the state.
