The Job Creators Network Foundation Legal Action Fund plans to sue the Biden administration over proposed vehicle emissions standards that the White House unveiled this month.
The administration asserts that the regulations would prevent the emission of roughly 10 billion tons of CO2, lower consumer costs, and accelerate a transition to clean energy-reliant vehicles.
The Biden administration rolled out a series of new emissions regulations for passenger vehicles and light trucks that it said would “unlock” $190 billion in benefits for American consumers.
The regulations will be enforced beginning with 2023 car models and will be revised with more stringent standards in 2027, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced. The EPA said the new emissions standards would ultimately quicken the transition from traditional engine vehicles to zero-emission cars.
“This day is truly historic,” EPA Administrator Michael Regan said during an event on Monday.
