A California lawmaker wants to put the state alongside China, France and the U.

K. and have its legislature consider a ban on vehicles powered by fossil fuels.

California Assemblymember Phil Ting, a Democrat who is chairman of the chamber's budget committee, said he plans to introduce a bill that, starting in 2040, would allow the state's motor vehicles department to register only "clean" vehicles that emit no carbon dioxide, such as battery-electric or hydrogen fuel-cell cars.

"Until you set a deadline, nothing gets done," Ting, who represents much of San Francisco, said in a phone interview Tuesday. "It's responsible for us to set a deadline 23 years in advance."
