Shot Across The Bow' At California Greenhouse Gas Rules

"This is going to be a new era for American jobs and job creation", Trump said at a round-table meeting.

Trump administration versus the CARB states The EPA and DOT will have to do battle with California and 12 other states and the District of Columbia if the agencies decide to rollback the emission and fuel efficiency standards.

In Washington, a senior White House official said the president wants to "set standards that are technologically feasible, economically feasible and allow the auto industry to grow and create jobs".

"A decision to withdraw the standards is nonsensical, as it would merely funnel more money to oil companies at consumers' expense and halt the progress that can be made in both savings for consumers and vehicle efficiency", said Shannon Baker-Branstetter, the policy counsel for the Consumers Union.

The White House official acknowledged that the administration could face legal challenges in 2018 if it chose to go another course, particularly with California's vow to push through tough standards.

Changing 2025 CAFE standards will require "a lengthy regulatory process", that may result in Democrats and Environmentalists suing the Trump administration, Reuters says.

Critics say the Trump decision means more greenhouse gas emissions, and a scaled back effort against global warming, but also slows the unveiling of less polluting, more fuel efficient autos on America's highways. New York State has joined California in the motion.

"My administration will work tirelessly to eliminate the industry-killing regulations, to lower the job-crushing taxes and to ensure a level playing field for all American companies and workers", the president said. It also aims to get an agreement between the industry and the government regarding the implementation of the standards back on track, the official said.

President Trump on Wednesday is making a move seen as good news for the auto industry and bad news for environmental advocates. We are going to be fair. The administration has made no decisions on how or if the standards should be revised, the official said.

The nuclear option. Trump could kill waivers that now allow California to set its own mileage and emissions standards, a regime that dates to 1970, when the federal Clean Air Act was enacted. Trump views the regulations as an impediment to economic growth.

"We need to put clean vehicle standards in the fast lane to keep our air clean and our climate safe", Michael Brune, Sierra Club executive director, said in a statement.

While Trump talked of ending the "assault" on the United States auto industry, it is unclear exactly what he is referring to.

Speaking about the changes, EPA administrator Scott Pruitt said "These standards are costly for automakers and the American people".
