Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. There are many mobile source regulatory requirements implemented nationally by EPA that impact mobile sources in West Virginia. See the national section MOBILE SOURCES for more information. In addition, idling statutes have been established for heavy-duty commercial vehicles, and the state's Department of Education has developed an anti-idling policy for school buses that has been incorporated by reference into the state regulations.

Administration and enforcement. EPA is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the mobile source programs impacting West Virginia. The West Virginia Department of Education, with assistance from West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), oversees the school bus anti-idling policy. The West Virginia Department of Transportation's DMV oversees the commercial vehicle idling standards.
