WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A group of 25 Republican state attorneys general Thursday urged the Biden administration to abandon its proposal to sharply cut tailpipe emissions and require dramatically more electric vehicles.
The Environmental Protection Agency in April proposed new 2027-2032 vehicle standards that would cut emissions by 56% versus existing 2026 requirements that would result in an estimated 60% of new vehicles by 2030 being electric.
The attorneys general say the EPA the proposal “is unlawful and misguided” and “would damage our economy, tax our electrical grids and the families and businesses who depend on them, and threaten our national security.”
