Trump finalizes rollback of Obama-era vehicle fuel efficiency standards
President Donald Trump's administration on April 2 completed a rollback of U.S. vehicle emissions standards adopted under his predecessor Barack Obama and will require 1.5% annual increases in efficiency through 2026 — far weaker than the 5% increases in the discarded rules. The announcement sets up a legal battle, with California and 22 other states planning to challenge the rewrite of what had been one of most ambitious U.S. policies aimed at combating climate change.
