Diesel World - - Dw News -

Upon com­plet­ing the midterm eval­u­a­tion (MTE) of the EPA’S green­house gas emis­sions stan­dards for cars and light trucks for model years 2022-25, EPA Ad­min­is­tra­tor Scott Pruitt an­nounced that the cur­rent stan­dards are much too strin­gent. Now the EPA will part­ner with the Na­tional High­way Traf­fic Safety Ad­min­is­tra­tion (NHTSA) to de­velop “more ap­pro­pri­ate” green­house gas emis­sions and Cor­po­rate Av­er­age Fuel Econ­omy (CAFE) stan­dards. Pruitt also weighed in on the EPA’S plans to fed­er­al­ize the new emis­sions stan­dards it es­tab­lishes: “It is in Amer­ica’s best in­ter­est to have a na­tional stan­dard, and we look for­ward to part­ner­ing with all states, in­clud­ing Cal­i­for­nia, as we work to fi­nal­ize that stan­dard.”
