Progress towards the goals On April 3, 2018 state attorneys general and mayors from across the country are vowing to challenge the Trump administration’s decision to roll back national clean car standards and uphold the standard adopted in 2012 that would help to ensure clean air for their residents. In a declaration, elected officials from more than 50 cities and over 25 states make clear their opposition to the rollback of a federal rule that sets targets for an increasingly clean, efficient and high-performance vehicle fleet through model year 2025.
