June 7, 2018—California and the auto industry mostly agree that the state should maintain a role in setting emissions standards, reported Bloomberg.
“We are now, I think it is fair to say, in a confusing situation,” Mary Nichols, head of the California Air Resources Board, said Tuesday at the Edison Electric Institute convention in San Diego, according to the report. “Maybe in the first time in recorded history, California and the auto industry are mostly in agreement that standards on the books actually should be on the books, and California should have a place in implementing those standards.”
Nichols comments come after the Trump administration is reviewing a proposal that would ease automobile efficiency standards.
State officials have not yet seen the proposal, according to Bloomberg.
