BREAKING: Trump Administration ‘REVOKES’ California’s Authority to Regulate Car Emissions

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.18.19

The Trump administration “revoked” the state of California’s authority to regulate automobile mileage standards Wednesday; saying the move will make cars “less expensive” and “substantially safer” for users.

“In a move President Trump said will reduce car prices but will also anger environmental groups, the administration is revoking California‘s authority to set strict fuel economy standards,” reports Fox News.

“The Trump Administration is revoking California’s Federal Waiver on emissions in order to produce far less expensive cars for the consumer, while at the same time making the cars substantially SAFER. This will lead to more production because of this pricing and safety advantage, and also due to the fact that older, highly polluting cars, will be replaced by new, extremely environmentally friendly cars. There will be very little difference in emissions between the California Standard and the new U.S. Standard, but the cars will be far safer and much less expensive. Many more cars will be produced under the new and uniform standard, meaning significantly more JOBS, JOBS, JOBS! Automakers should seize this opportunity because without this alternative to California, you will be out of business,” posted Trump on Twitter.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra claims the rule-change will hurt US automakers and vows to fight the policy in federal court.
