California Air Resources Board (CARB) and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are both being sued for their impractical and unattainable rules transitioning the nation’s trucks to zero emission vehicles (ZEV).

CARB is being sued by nineteen states claiming their Advanced Clean Fleet (ACF) rule stretches way beyond California’s borders and puts our nation’s economy in peril.

EPA is being sued by the American Petroleum Institute (API) along with co-petitioners Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA), National Corn Growers Association and American Farm Bureau Federation claiming the EPA has overstepped its authority under the Clean Air Act by using a fleet-wide average rather than specific standard. The EPA is clearly pushing an unachievable ZEV requirement regardless of the fact that the technology and infrastructure do not exist and will not exist by the transition date of 2027.
