President Trump is going after California's auto emission standards. His administration announced that they are revoking California's ability to set emission standards higher than the federal standard. They were granted that right in the 1970's. The president claims that this move will allow for cheaper and safer cars. California plans to fight the decision in court. A dozen other states and DC itself follow California's emission standard.
