Court Battle Looms as EPA Says ‘No’ To California Emission Plan

Hosted by

Late last night, the Environmental Protection Agency denied California’s request to set its own vehicle standards for controlling emissions of greenhouse gases. Today at the White House, President Bush defended that action. The Washington Post says that in issuing yesterday’s denial of California’s request, the EPA Administrator over-ruled his own legal staff.  It told him in a PowerPoint presentation that if the state went to court,  “the EPA would be likely to lose the suit.”
