The Department of Environmental Protection shall consult with the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission and the New Jersey Transit Corporation when developing the provisions of the rules and regulations to be adopted pursuant to section 3 of P.L.2005, c.219 (C.26:2C-8.28) concerning diesel commercial buses. No later than 60 days before any proposed rules or regulations are filed for publication in the New Jersey Register, the Department of Environmental Protection shall submit for comment to the New Jersey Transit Corporation any rules or regulations concerning diesel commercial buses proposed for adoption pursuant to section 3, section 19, or section 20 of P.L.2005, c.219 (C.26:2C-8.28, C.26:2C-8.44, or C.26:2C-8.45). The Department of Environmental Protection, wherever possible, shall incorporate into requirements imposed on the New Jersey Transit Corporation the use of improved pollution control or fuels other than conventional diesel fuel used by the New Jersey Transit Corporation pursuant to section 22 of P.L.1984, c.73 (C.27:1B-22), but may require additional controls or fuel use for diesel commercial buses operated by, or under contract to, the New Jersey Transit Corporation. No provision of section 22 of P.L.1984, c.73 (C.27:1B-22) shall be construed to supersede, or exempt the New Jersey Transit Corporation from, any requirements the Department of Environmental Protection may establish pursuant to this section. The Department of Environmental Protection shall give due consideration to the efforts and actions of the New Jersey Transit Corporation for any reduction of fine particle diesel emissions that it has achieved by the installation of retrofit equipment on on-road diesel vehicles in its fleet or the use of special fuels by its fleet to use prior to the submittal of any fleet retrofit plan, combined fleet retrofit plan, or fleet averaging plan required pursuant to P.L.2005, c.219 (C.26:2C-8.26 et al.).
