We’ve all heard by now that President Trump is proposing to take away “California’s power to set its own vehicle tailpipe emissions standards, escalating an environmental dispute that has trapped auto makers in the middle.”
This move by Trump is reported to be in conjunction with a rollback of Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) Standards.
To date, all of California emission standards restrictions eclipse those of the federal government.
If you are unfamiliar, Corporate Average Fuel Economy(CAFE) Standards are regulations, first enacted by the United States Congress in 1975, after the 1973–74 Arab oil embargo, to improve the average fuel economy of cars and light trucks (trucks, vans and sport utility vehicles) produced for sale in the United States.
