The long reach of the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) regulations and their impact to fleets across the country are resulting in lawsuits. Folks are sick of California setting the defacto national standard.

Nineteen states are suing the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for allowing California to circumvent the EPA’s Clean Air Act and implement emission standards and zero-emission truck sales and use mandates more stringent than those of the federal government. Leading the charge is Iowa’s Attorney General, Brenna Bird, who has stated, “The EPA and California have no right or legal justification to force truckers to follow their radical climate agenda.”

Iowa is joined in the lawsuit by Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Ohio, South Carolina, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming.

The Pennsylvania Motor Truck Association (PMTA) and four motor carriers in Pennsylvania are suing their state for automatically adopting California’s emission standards without the approval of their state legislature or regulatory bodies.

The California Trucking Association (CTA) is preparing its litigation against CARB when the Advanced Clean Fleet (ACF) rule is officially adopted, which will likely be next month.
