Trump orders environmental notice to San Francisco on homeless

Per the New York Times, this seems like a bit of a disingenuous end-run around that impasse: Trump is simply set to revoke a waiver granted under the US 1970 Clean Air Act that allows California to set emissions standards tighter than the federal government.

During the initial implementation of the Clean Air Act, the Golden State was suffering from extensive smog problems and was granted a waiver that allowed it to set stricter pollution standards than those under the Clean Air Act.

He has made a decision to take action to revoke that waiver, and thus revoke the state's right to self-determine environmental policy.

Under Trump, the EPA contends that freezing the fuel economy standards will reduce the average sticker price of new vehicles by about $2,700 USA by 2025, though that predicted savings is disputed by environmental groups and is more than double the EPA estimates from the prior administration.

In revoking California's skill to blueprint its luxuriate in automobile requirements, the administration is declaring that entirely the federal govt has the energy to adjust greenhouse gas emissions and fuel economy. "It will take years and years and years, more uncertainty more anxiety", Newsom said, according to the LA Times. The state accounts for about 12 percent of all vehicle sales.

The president was joined at the event by Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel, son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner, and son Donald Trump Jr. and his girlfriend, former Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle (who is also California Gov. Gavin Newsom's ex-wife).

"The coming fight over California's auto emissions authority will involve complex questions of federalism, congressional intent, and executive authority". And it's a critical fight for California because the state has more cars than any other, and the pollution from all those cars disproportionately affects residents.

In a morning flurry of tweets, Trump confirmed he will revoke California's authority to require car-makers to build cleaner vehicles than federal requirements demand.

"One way for automakers to meet the standards is to lower the price of electric vehicles and raise the price of other, more popular vehicles, such as SUVs and trucks", Wheeler said.

In July, under the waiver system, California conducted secret negotiations with Ford, Honda, Volkswagen and BMW of North America pledged to produce fleets that meet a standard of 50 miles per USA gallon (4.7 litres per 100km), against the current 37 mpg level, by 2026. Due to the vast size of these states' collective economies, vehicle companies are compelled to meet its pollution standards or generate two different products: one for California and one for the rest of the country. As with many Obama-era environmental accomplishments, that agreement has been targeted by the Trump administration.

The Trump administration has always been at odds with California, a state that prides itself as the center of the resistance to his agenda, especially on environmental issues. Last summer, the Republican White House announced plans to roll back the tougher standards, making it easier for the automotive industry to sell less efficient vehicles that pollute more.

California attorney general Xavier Becerra said Mr Trump's action will hurt U.S. auto makers and families.

In July, four automakers signed a deal with California, agreeing to produce passenger vehicles averaging 50 mpg by 2026. But those are two different animals - fuel economy standards were introduced to reduce US dependence on imported oil, while the tailpipe emission limits are created to combat smog and other forms of air pollution.

"The EPA has sometimes stalled, we've sometimes had to push, we once went to court, but we have never had a situation where there was suddenly a change of mind about what to do", said California Air Resources Board Chair Mary Nichols.
