funding dedicated to this effort [the idle reduction goals], it is quite difficult, if not impossible, to accomplish these goals” (DOE, 2011).

Recommendation 6-5. The 21CTP should revise its new idle reduction goals to include metrics, funding, and timing for the overall goal of reducing fuel use and emissions produced by idling engines. The associated “action items” should be supportive of these goals.
