WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said Thursday he was unaware of any support by the Biden administration to ban gas-powered vehicles after 2035 as California aims to do.

Asked by a lawmaker at a U.S. House hearing if the Biden administration supported California’s plan to ban the sale of new gas-powered passenger cars and trucks in 2035, Buttigieg said he had “not heard of anything to that effect at the national or federal level.” He did note that automakers like General Motors (NYSE:) have set a goal of ending passenger gas-vehicle sales by 2035. “I’ve not heard of that in a mandatory context but that certainly seems to be where the U.S. auto industry is headed.”
