EPA ESTABLISHES FRAMEWORK TO MAKE NEW CLEANER CARS
EPA today established the framework necessary for a voluntary program that would make significantly cleaner burning new cars available nationwide. The EPA has been working to forge an agreement between the Northeastern states and the automobile manufacturers to produce National Low Emission Vehicles. Although the Northeastern states and auto manufacturers still must agree to the program, today's rule sets out enforceable provisions such as emission standards and test procedures that would apply if such an agreement is reached. EPA will continue to work with the parties to complete this program.
