BREAKING: EPA, DOT Take Aim At Auto Emissions Standards

he leaders of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Transportation said Wednesday they will revisit Obama-era standards on greenhouse gas emissions for 2022 to 2025 model cars and light trucks, a win for automakers that said the standards were too tough to meet.

The announcement is a rebuke to the Obama administration’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas pollution from the transportation sector and deal with climate change, and again shows the Trump administration’s commitment to easing regulatory obligations on industry.
