    Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak has announced plans to adapt regulations that would require a larger percentage of cars sold in the state to be electric -- as a way to cut back on air pollution.
    Under Sisolak”s “Clean Cars Nevada” initiative, six-to-eight percent of vehicles that auto dealers offer for sale for the 2025 model year must be electric. It comes after a report released earlier this year by the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection that showed the state’s transportation sector is expected to be the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions through 2030.
    “This is one of our first steps in taking more aggressive action on climate change in Nevada,” Brad Crowell, director of the Nevada Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, said on Nevada Newsmakers Thursday.
