Rule Rollback for Clean Cars Meets Diverse Opposition

Twenty-four governors representing 52% of US population have asked the Trump administration to stop the rollback of rules for auto emissions. Wisconsin is not among them.

Seventeen automakers asked the President to soften his approach to a rule change fearing it will hurt their bottom line as states will continue to enforce the stricter standards of the Obama administration. Electric utilities, which have been investing in vehicle-charging infrastructure, are opposed to weakened rules that would slow the transition to electrified transportation. The chemical industry has objected too, as they are involved in developing technology to lightweight vehicles that is growing jobs and advancing innovation. nytimes
