A.G. Schneiderman Secures Court Order Blocking Trump Administration Delay Of Fuel Efficiency Standar
A.G. Schneiderman's office press release --------- New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman announced today a federal court order blocking the Trump administration’s delay of a rule that updates penalties assessed to automakers for noncompliance with federal fuel efficiency standards. The rule encourages automakers to produce vehicle fleets that meet or exceed federal fuel efficiency standards – which would reduce carbon emissions by 1.8 billion metric tons and save each consumer $1,650. In September, Attorney General Schneiderman and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra led a coalition of five Attorneys General (New York, California, Vermont, Maryland, and Pennsylvania) that filed suit to block the Trump administration’s delay of the penalty rule. This morning, the Second Circuit issued an order vacating the Trump administration’s delay rule. To learn more click on the picture below to read the release.
