Industry Leaders Unite to Challenge EPA’s Vehicle Emissions Regulation

A coalition of over a dozen influential organizations, including the California Independent Petroleum Association, filed a legal challenge against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) newly finalized emissions standards for light and medium-duty vehicles for model years 2027-2032.

These government regulations, finalized in March 2024, aim to significantly reduce emissions by banning most new gas and diesel cars and trucks within the next eight years. The coalition argues that the EPA lacks the authority to impose such extensive restrictions and that these regulations will limit consumer choices and undermine access to affordable gasoline vehicles.

The letter emphasized the importance of overturning these rules to protect consumer decision-making and ensure energy security.

The legal petition was filed on June 13 with the DC Circuit Court.
