SACRAMENTO, CA - Automotive News reported that California Air Resources Board Chairman Mary Nichols says that the state will match any move by Washington to relax pollution rule with its own anti-pollution requirements on vehicles that burn petroleum-based fuels.

“CARB will be exploring ways to ensure communities get the reductions of air pollution they so desperately need to keep the air clean and breathable -- and continue to fight climate change,” Nichols said at a meeting with California air quality and transportation agencies on Thursday.

“That might mean, for example, tougher requirements for low-carbon fuels, looking at tighter health-protective regulations on California refineries, doubling down on our enforcement efforts on mobile and stationary sources -- and might lead to an outright ban on internal combustion engines," she said.

The Trump administration plans to ease carbon dioxide emissions and fuel economy standards to 37 miles per gallon after 2020. Currently, the rules are set to rise to 47 mpg.

“The federal rule will pump hundreds of millions of tons of climate-changing gases into the atmosphere, and will increase the amount of smog-forming pollution in our most polluted cities,” Nichols said. “Steps may be needed to keep moving forward to fight climate change and continue to protect public health if it ever goes into effect.”
