Comment to EPA on CARB ACC II Waiver Request

  • Auto Innovators submitted comments in response to California’s ACC II waiver request to EPA.  The comments do not take a position on California’s authority to establish vehicle emissions regulations.  Instead, our comments request that EPA consider the feasibility of other Section 177 states meeting the ACC II regulations in the timeframe established.  The points outlined in the comments highlight the contrast between California EV investments and other Section 177 states, and the importance for EPA to take that into consideration when considering granting a waiver.
