Trump administration eyes truck emissions standards for its next climate rollback
Scott Pruitt targets yet another greenhouse gas emissions-cutting standard.

The Trump administration plans to revisit greenhouse gas emissions and efficiency standards for freight trucks just months before the standards are scheduled to take effect, a decision environmental groups view as yet another capitulation by the administration to industry demands.

The Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Transportation announced on Thursday formal steps to begin reconsidering the greenhouse gas pollution and fuel economy standards of large trucks, focused on the standards for freight trailers. The Obama administration designed the standards to make heavy-duty tractor-trailers more efficient and less polluting.

Good. From what I've read about Obama's truck emissions standards, they are absurd. They are going to bankrupt the trucking industry. Trump needs to kill stuff like this or the economy will go into a tailspin. And of course, all the snowflakes would blame Trump when it does.
