The EPA Should Allow States to Act!
Eleven states are following California's lead by establishing environmental standards that would reduce greenhouse gas emissions from cars and trucks by up to 30 percent. Together, these twelve states represent about a third of the US car and truck market. This means that their actions could force automakers to upgrade vehicles across the nation!
But none of these states can act without a waiver from the EPA, which (after sitting on California's waiver request for a year and a half) has finally decided to hold hearings on the issue. It may well say "no" to California and the other states once it gets around to making a ruling, unless there is sufficient public comment telling them to do the right thing.
