The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency what it says are the most stringent emissions regulations on everyday passenger cars and light duty trucks ever to be imposed on the model years 2023 through 2026.
The administration of President Joe Biden has announced it was reconsidering national soot standards that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) had determined in 2020 adequately protected public health.
President Joe Biden signed an executive order directing agencies with regulatory authority over passenger vehicles to set standards which will result in half of all cars sold in the United States by 2030 being zero-emissions vehicles.
A proposal in the Washington Senate, the Climate Commitment Act, would create a cap-and-trade scheme designed to reduce carbon-dioxide emissions in the state to “net zero” by 2050. It would make everything more expensive.
