EPA denies waiver for CA to regulate emissions

ThinkProgress

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Stephen Johnson today denied California’s long-standing request for a waiver from federal law to be able to implement its own landmark regulations to slash greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles.” At issue were “tailpipe standards California adopted in 2004 that would force automakers to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 30 percent in new cars and light trucks by 2016.” The EPA said it did not find that separate California standards are needed to “meet compelling and extraordinary conditions.”
