RIVERSIDE, Calif., March 24 California on Friday
approved vehicle pollution targets that the Trump administration
last week put on hold, setting up a potential face-off between
federal and state regulators that could be expensive for
automakers and a headache for consumers.
California Air Resources Board members criticized the auto
industry for asking federal regulators to reconsider vehicle
emissions targets for 2022-2025. The board then finalized the
vehicle pollution rules for the state, set a mandate for
zero-emission sales over the same time period, and ordered its
staff to start work on targets for after 2025.
