Feds considering repeal of EPA emissions rule for trucks

The Trump administration is considering repealing an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rule limiting emissions from truck components.
According to an Office of Management and Budget notice, the EPA is formally proposing to repeal the rule, something EPA Administrator Scott Pruittsaid in August he would do.
The regulation, an Obama administration effort to cut climate change-causing emissions from the transportation sector, aims to limit pollution from trucks.

Obama’s EPA aimed to apply emissions standards for new motor vehicles and engines to the refurbished gliders.
