NEW YORK – Attorney General Letitia James today led a multistate coalition fighting the Trump Administration’s efforts to undercut industry compliance with fuel efficiency standards in New York and across the United States. In a lawsuit— filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit — Attorney General James and 12 of the nation’s Attorneys General challenge a final rule issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which reduces penalties to an earlier Obama-era rule for automakers if they fail to meet corporate average fuel economy standards (CAFE).
