Winning: Trump Admin Repeals Rule On States Complying With Auto GHG Mandates

Trump and company certainly have their good points and bad points (much like every administration). One thing you can’t argue with, unless you’re a big government Democrat, is how the Trump admin is reducing the power of the federal government over citizens and states

(Daily Caller) President Donald Trump’s administration repealed a rule forcing states to comply with a policy monitoring greenhouse gas levels from tailpipes of American automobiles.

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) signed a final rule May 22 that eliminates a mandate requiring state agencies to establish emission targets, calculate their progress toward those targets, and determine a plan of action if they failed to make progress during a performance period.

The rule repealed the performance management measure assessing the percent change in tailpipe carbon dioxide emissions on the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) measure. It also measured total annual tons of carbon emissions from all on-road mobile sources.

States and other locals across the country can still pursue similar actions locally. The repeal of the GHG measure does not affect implementation of the other national performance management measures states are responsible for administering.

If states want to piss away the money they forcibly take from their citizens (strange that liberals aren’t willing to just stroke checks to the government for more than their tax burden, eh?), they are welcome to do so. If they want to make all the action plans, they’re welcome to do so. But they aren’t going to be forced to do so.

The original rule was finalized on January 18, 2017, just a few days before Trump took office, so, yet another piece of Obama’s legacy down the tubes.

    Let the lawsuits begin!

    So when redneck states increase their air pollution, how will they keep it inside their own borders?

    CO2 and other GHGs might sneak across state lines, what with a convective atmosphere and all.
