1.15    "Sec. 3. [216H.10] DEFINITIONS.

1.17following terms have the meanings given.
1.18    Subd. 2. Agency. "Agency" means the Pollution Control Agency.
1.19    Subd. 3. Carbon dioxide equivalent. "Carbon dioxide equivalent" means the
1.20quantity of carbon dioxide that has the same global warming potential as a given amount
1.21of another greenhouse gas.
1.22    Subd. 4. Commissioner. "Commissioner" means the commissioner of the Pollution
1.23Control Agency.
1.24    Subd. 5. Global warming. "Global warming" means the observed and predicted
1.25increase in the temperature of the atmosphere near the earth's surface and the oceans.
2.1    Subd. 6. Global warming potential or GWP. "Global warming potential" or
2.2"GWP" means a quantitative measure of the potential of an emission of a greenhouse
2.3gas to contribute to global warming over a 100-year period expressed in terms of the
2.4equivalent emission of carbon dioxide needed to produce the same 100-year warming
2.5effect, as reported in Fourth Assessment Report: Climate Change 2007, International
2.6Panel on Climate Change.
2.7    Subd. 7. High-GWP greenhouse gas. "High-GWP greenhouse gas" means
2.8hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, and sulfur hexafluoride.
2.9    Subd. 8. Mobile air conditioner. "Mobile air conditioner" means mechanical
2.10vapor compression refrigeration equipment used to cool the passenger compartment of a
2.11motor vehicle.
2.12    Subd. 9. Motor vehicle. "Motor vehicle" has the meaning given in section 168.011,
2.13subdivision 4.
2.14    Subd. 10. New motor vehicle. "New motor vehicle" has the meaning given in
2.15section 80E.03, subdivision 7.
2.16    Subd. 11. Refrigerant. "Refrigerant" means a substance used, sold for use, or
2.17designed and intended for use in a mobile air conditioner to transfer heat out of the space
2.18being cooled.

2.20    Subdivision 1. Gas manufacturers. Beginning October 1, 2008, and each year
2.21thereafter, a manufacturer of a high-GWP greenhouse gas must report to the agency the
2.22total amount of each high-GWP greenhouse gas sold to a purchaser in this state during
2.23the previous year.
2.24    Subd. 2. Purchases. Beginning October 1, 2008, and each year thereafter, a
2.25person in this state who purchases 100 metric tons or more carbon dioxide equivalent
2.26of a high-GWP greenhouse gas must report to the agency, on a form prescribed by the
2.27commissioner, the total amount of each high-GWP greenhouse gas purchased during the
2.28previous year and the purpose for which the gas was used.
2.29    Subd. 3. Acceptance of federal filing. With the approval of the commissioner, this
2.30section may be satisfied by filing with the commissioner a copy of a greenhouse gas
2.31emissions report filed with a federal agency.

3.1    Subdivision 1. Leakage disclosure. Beginning January 1, 2009, a manufacturer
3.2selling or offering for sale a new motor vehicle in this state containing a mobile air
3.3conditioner that uses the high-GWP greenhouse gas HFC-134a (1,1,1,2-tetrafluoroethane)
3.4as a refrigerant must, 90 days prior to the initial sale or offer for sale, report to the
3.5commissioner the leakage rate, in grams of refrigerant per year, for the type of mobile
3.6air conditioner contained in that make, model, and model year. The leakage rate must be
3.7calculated using the information provided in the most recently published version of the
3.8Society of Automotive Engineers International document J2727, "HFC-134a Mobile
3.9Air Conditioning System Emission Chart." The method by which the leakage rate is
3.10calculated, accounting for each component of the air conditioning unit, must also be
3.11reported to the commissioner.
3.12    Subd. 2. Posting. Beginning January 1, 2009, the agency and the Office of the
3.13Attorney General must post on their Web sites:
3.14    (1) the leakage rate disclosed by a manufacturer under subdivision 1 for each model
3.15and make of new motor vehicle sold or offered for sale in this state; and
3.16    (2) the following statement: "Vehicle air conditioning systems can leak refrigerants
3.17that contribute to global warming. Some leak more than others. You can use the
3.18information provided in the chart to compare information about the global warming
3.19effects of refrigerant leakage from different makes and models when making a decision to
3.20purchase a vehicle."

3.23    After July 1, 2008, no person may buy or sell a refrigerant designed to be used in a
3.24mobile air conditioner in a container holding less than 15 pounds of refrigerant.

3.25    Sec. 7. [216H.15] ENFORCEMENT.
3.26    Sections 216H.10 to 216H.14 may be enforced under sections 115.071 and 116.072.

3.28    By February 1, 2009, the commissioner of the Pollution Control Agency shall submit
3.29a report to the chairs and ranking minority members of the senate and house committees
3.30with primary jurisdiction over environmental policy that identifies the uses and emissions
3.31sources of hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, and sulfur hexafluoride in this state
3.32and suggests options for reducing or eliminating those uses and emissions and the costs
3.33of implementing those options.

3.34    Sec. 9. EFFECTIVE DATE.
4.1    Sections 1 to 8 are effective the day following final enactment."
4.2Renumber the sections in sequence and correct the internal references
