The Road Ahead: How Recent Government Activity on Vehicle Emissions and Fuel Economy Could Impact What We Do

Congress recently enacted a major new infrastructure bill and other legislation which will significantly impact on how motor vehicles are designed, built, and used. In addition, President Biden issued an Executive Order last August setting a 2030 target for the sale of new plug-in motor vehicles and directing EPA and NHTSA to conduct several rulemakings addressing motor vehicle greenhouse gas emissions, fuel economy, conventional pollutants. In addition to highlighting the potential impacts of these federal legislative and regulatory initiatives, this roundtable will touch new CARB-related GHG and ZEV mandates and on how the President’s overarching environmental justice and equity priorities likely will be taken into account.
