The California Trucking Association suing over emissions regulations that will ban diesel semi trucks from the state over the next two decades.
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) approved the “Advanced Clean Fleets” rule in April, banning the sale of diesel trucks by 2036 and requiring all trucks operating in California to be zero-emission by 2042.
The California Trucking Association (CTA) is suing CARB over the “Advance Clean Fleets” rule according to documents filed on October 16th. The lawsuit claims that the state cannot regulate trucking emissions without getting permission from the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
CTA aims to have the new regulations declared as contrary to law and therefore invalid. The association is also requesting an injunction to stop CARB from enforcing the regulations.
