California’s Authority to Regulate Automobile Greenhouse Gas Emissions Is Under Attack

Last week, the White House announced the EPA’s proposal to rollback national limits on greenhouse emissions from vehicles and revoke California’s authority to set more protective vehicle pollution limits for cars sold in California.

This proposal also revokes California’s half-century old authority to set state vehicle efficiency and emissions standards to protect its residents from the health effects of smog. California’s Air Resources Board has set more stringent emissions standards than the Federal government since it was formed in 1967, before the passage of the Clean Air Act in 1970. Today, more than 12 states have adopted regulations to follow California’s healthier standards.
