Did automakers collude with California to enact stricter pollution standards for cars?

The Justice Department has begun an investigation into whether four automakers colluded with California to make cars with stricter fuel efficiency standards. Ford, Honda, BMW, and Volkswagen have struck a deal with California to make tailpipe emission standards go beyond what the Trump administration proposed. Now the Justice Department is saying that agreement could violate antitrust laws.
