Twenty-Three AGs Filed Motion to Intervene Defending EPA’s Heavy-Duty Vehicles Rule

California Attorney General Rob Bonta led a coalition of 23 attorneys general—along with four cities—in filing a motion to intervene to defend the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) greenhouse gas emission standards for heavy-duty vehicles. The rule—which is expected to reduce one billion tons of greenhouse gas emissions from trucks, buses, and other heavy-duty vehicles and result in $10 billion in annual climate benefits—was challenged by 25 states led by Nebraska.
