NEW YORK – New York Attorney General James today took action to fight against the Trump Administration's significant weakening of federal vehicle fuel efficiency and pollution emission standards. In a multistate lawsuit filed in the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, the coalition challenges the Trump Administration’s reckless Safer Affordable Fuel-Efficient Vehicles (SAFE), which significantly rolls back the national Clean Car Standards for vehicle model years 2021-2025. The suit argues that the standards rollback will stop in its tracks the hard-fought for progress in saving consumers at the pump and reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions, hurting the economy and public health at a time when the country can least afford it.
