State Assembly Approves New Smog Measure

Sponsored by:

The state assembly approved a measure that requires the State Air Resources Board to adopt reduced vehicle emissions regulations for passenger cars and light trucks by 2004. The bill is designed to allow auto manufacturers and the state to find a compromise in carbon dioxide emissions standards. Auto makers oppose the bill, stating that federal law prohibits state actions on C-O-2 emissions.
