Shifting Gears: Action on State & Federal Vehicle Emissions Standards

The Environmental Protection Agency has announced a rulemaking to revise standards for model year 2022-2025 light duty vehicles. EPA determined current standards may be too stringent. The reconsidered Midterm Evaluation could result in competing standards, as well as increased pollution and fuel costs for consumers. The transportation sector is now the single largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States. This webinar will provide an overview of federal agency announcements and examine current state collaborations to limit vehicle emissions.
