Truck emission rules could be called off with veto

May 25, 20230

On Tuesday, the House of Representatives voted to remove tough emission rules for commercial trucks, but the decision is expected to be reversed.

The vote in the House of Representatives took place on Tuesday, May 23, after the Senate voted a month ago to repeal this rule.

The rule will now be sent to President Joe Biden, who is expected to veto the repeal.

The new emissions standards were adopted by the EPA in December and set standards that are “significantly more stringent and cover a wider range of high-power engine operating conditions than today’s standards.”

Representatives of the trucking industry called the rules “catastrophic” for the trucking industry.
