Trump to bar California from setting vehicle emissions rules, say sources

The Trump administration will announce as early as Wednesday it is revoking California’s authority to set its own vehicle greenhouse gas standards and blocking states from setting tailpipe emission rules — a move that will spark a furious legal challenge, two auto industry officials said on Tuesday. Trump met with senior officials last Thursday and agreed to greenlight the plan to bar California from setting fuel efficiency standards or requiring zero emission vehicles, Reuters reported last week. The White House declined to comment.
