WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A group of 21 state attorneys general, the District of Columbia, and several major U.S. cities has urged the Biden administration to finalize stricter vehicle emissions rules than it has proposed.

In August, Environmental Protection Agency demanded that Trump’s loosening of emissions regulations be reversed. They also proposed a new plan for efficiency to increase 10% by 2023 model years and aim for 52 miles per gallon fleet average by 2026. However, the cities and states want stricter rules.

California’s state attorneys general wrote that there is no reason to hold off on further technology deployment or delay in reaping the huge economic and health benefits from reducing emissions.
