Tell the EPA: Grant California’s Full Waiver Authority for Vehicle Emissions.
Vehicles make up the largest share of emissions in the country. The EPA must allow California to set ambitious clean truck regulations to keep the nation on a path to achieving President Biden’s climate commitments.
Fifty years ago, the Clean Air Act gave California waiver authority to set its own emissions standards for cars and trucks. Since then, every Democratic presidential administration approved California’s waiver, helping reduce pollution and incentivize automakers to invest more in developing clean vehicles.
But now, the trucking industry is intervening to try to break the streak, suing the EPA to try to get the Biden administration to partially deny the waiver.

Your comment can be broad-brush : America’s reputation, our economy, government corruption, unbridled corporate power and greed, the environment, the future. Or just one aspect that affects you deeply: your air, your water, your joy, your health and the health of those you love.
There are no wrong answers. The only wrong action is letting this administration think that we don’t care enough to stop them.
