Calif. to fight Trump’s ‘politically motivated’ car standards plan

Rep. Doris Matsui (D-Calif.) joined in on Twitter, accusing Pruitt of “taking yet another step to undermine EPA’s mission of protecting clean air and public health & this time it will also cost drivers billions at the pump.”

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) declared Monday afternoon that the Obama-era greenhouse gas rules for cars made between 2022 and 2025 are too ambitious and should be eased.

That sets up a fight with the Golden State, which currently sets its own car emissions rules and has argued for stringent regulations. Twelve other states currently follow those rules, accounting for a third of the nation’s car market.
