Trump Administration Eliminates U.S. DOT's Emission Reductions Goals
Until now, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has required state and regional transit agencies to create targets to reduce emissions and track progress toward those goals. Moving forward, that will no longer be the case. "The Federal Highway Administration announced last week that the carbon emissions rule has been revoked, even though public comments overwhelmingly supported maintaining the reporting requirements," Angie Schmitt writes.
The Natural Resources Defense Council says they are looking at the decision and may fight this policy change in court.
