“California and 16 other states across the nation have adopted innovative clean car standards that will help us build healthier communities, save families hard earned money at the gas pump, and create jobs. We applaud EPA for correcting the past administration’s unlawful roadblocks to state progress, and for enabling states across the country – from California to Colorado to Minnesota to Maine – to continue their leadership roles in advancing clean car standards.”
