Appeals court to hear challenges to big truck tailpipe emissions law


In Washington this week, Congress will not only return to work but a federal appeals court will hear challenges to the Biden administration’s efforts to curb tailpipe emissions.

It could mean the cases before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia will end up before the U.S. Supreme Court. Three challenges were made to the Biden administration’s policies meant to curb what is considered the largest source of pollution in the country.

What it means is this. The cases not only test a 1960s waiver allowing Califonria to impose pollution controls stricter than the federal government, but could apply the Supreme Court’s decision last year against the EPA and its control of power plant emissions.
