ABSTRACT
The article considers the request of U.S. President Barack Obama for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to reconsider former President George W. Bush's policy of banning states from implementing their own standards for tailpipe emissions. At issue is a law in California adopted in 2004 that limited emissions from new cars sold in the state. Each car manufacturer had been given until 2016 to cut average emissions across all models in their range by 30 per cent. But the law soon stalled and was eventually blocked by the EPA.
