"SNIP.....

The Trump administration will announce it is rescinding California’s authority to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from automobiles on Wednesday, according to people familiar with the matter, a move sure to set off a legal battle with the most populous state.

The Environmental Protection Agency intends to announce it will revoke the so-called waiver underpinning California’s power to set vehicle greenhouse gas standards separately from the Trump administration’s broader rule to ease federal vehicle-efficiency standards, which is expected in the weeks ahead, the people said. The people asked to not be identified discussing plans prior to announcement.

Among those invited to the agency’s headquarters for the announcement are free-market groups that have championed the Trump administration’s rollback of automobile fuel economy and emissions standards adopted during the Obama administration. Plans for the announcement are still being developed and could change, one of the people said.

The move is almost certain to spark a lengthy legal battle over California’s regulatory powers that could throw the critical standards into uncertainty for years.

2. Length legal battle, indeed. I'd bet they will be poised to wait the administration out

and Goddess-willing, this will be quickly reversed come 2021.

3. Hasn't California had

stricter emissions standards for decades? How can they possibly take that away?

Hopefully, the state of California will essentially say Fuck You to that attempt.

6. Because Federal law pre-empts state law and California specifically has a waiver

of Federal law that enables them to impose those standards.

4. Don't republicans believe in state's rights?

Or do they just believe in them when they are stepping on the backs of women and POC?

7. I wonder what would happen if ...

if the state of California announced that it will ignore any directives from the EPA and continue to set and enforce its own mileage and emissions standards.

9. California leads the way on emissions, but really this SHOULD be centrally managed

At the Federal level.

It's funny how Trump talks about states rights until it comes to something like this.

What should happen is that California's standard should be applied at the National level
