In addition to the lawsuit filed by the California Trucking Association (CTA) against the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) Advanced Clean Fleet (ACF) rule, the Western States Trucking Association (WSTA) has also filed two lawsuits. One against CARB and its ACF regulation and other against the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarding CARB’s Advanced Clean Truck (ACT) rule.

The WSTA’s lawsuit against the EPA is filed in the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and claims the EPA exceeded its authority by granting CARB a waiver to enact regulations stricter than the federal EPA’s. The WSTA is citing a similar case which was ruled against the EPA last December, West Viriginia vs US EPA.

The WSTA’s lawsuit against CARB is filed in California and cites many failures…failure to comply with its mandate to evaluate potential environmental impacts, failure to adequately assess economic impacts and alternatives, failure to engage in external peer review and failure to comply with California’a Health & Safety Code.
