Legislators 'urge' the California Air Resources Board to "Back Off"
Just one day after a federal lawsuit was filed to to halt the U.S. government and the state of California from moving ahead with new greenhouse gas emissions rules for cars and trucks, 20 Senators and 32 Assemblymembers sent a letter to CARB urging them suspend proposed regulations. The suit filed Tuesday, Sept. 8, by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Automobile Dealers Assn. seeks to block the waiver that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) granted to California under the Clean Air Act to set vehicle emissions standards. The letter to CARB is dated September 9, 2009.
From YAHOO OFFROAD DIESEL group:
“Assemblyman Roger Niello has led a bi-partisan group of legislators to send a letter to the California Air Resources Board (CARB) requesting a temporary suspension of on and off-road diesel regulations that have taken effect within the last year.”
