EPA to Propose Stronger Vehicle GHG Emissions Standards

According to reports, the U.S. EPA will issue a proposed rule intended to tighten passenger vehicle emissions standards beyond levels set during the Obama administration. The new proposal is expected to call for vehicles to meet California’s 2019 framework agreement on emissions standards beginning with the 2023 model year. The new proposal is expected to accelerate mileage requirements by 6 or 7% annually beginning with model year 2026. 7/28/2021
