WASHINGTON (Reuters) – It is expected that the Trump administration Thursday authority will revoke California to set its own standards on the efficiency of greenhouse gas and vehicle fuel, move with high bets for the auto industry, consumers and the environment.
The Environmental Protection Agency highlighted the need to establish a single set of national fuel economy standards. Currently, a dozen other states have followed the most stringent regulations in California.
California's revocation ability to set its own standards is part of a battle multiplied by the Trump administration to tackle the state's efforts to remodel the vehicles being driven by Americans. The administration also intends to announce a specific rule in the coming weeks which would defer Obama's era-time fuel efficiency standards agreed with the state.
Trump on Wednesday was the step for consumers, saying that cheaper and safer vehicles would be under federal requirements.
Officials in California rejected these claims and pledged that the federal government would try to restrict its ability to set its own standards in relation to emissions of vehicles and electric cars.
Governor Gavin Newsom, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra and Mary Nichols, California's state regulator said that Trump would disrupt public health and leave the US automobile industry behind the global race to build electricity vehicles. .
California received a waiver from the EPA in 2013, allowing it to set its own emissions rules.
Automated in the center. While worrying that California electric vehicle mandates will be expensive, global automation has little choice but to develop battery electric cars and trucks as Europe and China are proceeding with rules that require them.
Automobile Allied Manufacturers, trading group representing General Motors Co., Toyota Motor Corp., Volkswagen AG (VOWG_p.DE), Ford Motor Co. and others refused on Wednesday to take a stand on California's waiver on Trump.
