Trump's administration gets sued by CA, NY and other states

Trump’s administration gets sued by California, New York and 3 other states for delaying the rollout of higher “gas-guzzler” penalties for automakers building new vehicles failing to meet minimum fuel-economy standards.

The suit, which also includes Vermont, Maryland and Pennsylvania, is the highest-profile legal challenge to Trump administration vehicle policy to date. As part of a broad deregulation push under President Donald Trump, regulators are debating whether to grant automakers significant reductions in fuel economy requirements. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said in a statement that fuel efficient cars mean "cleaner air, better overall health for our children, and savings at the pump... We will hold the Trump Administration accountable."

 

 

The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals in New York and follows a separate suit by three environmental groups over the delay. The U.S. Transportation Department declined comments. The challenge by the states follows a separate suit filed by three environmental groups over the delay.

    16 Nov 2017
