HeadLocke No. 72: Trump auto rule poses no danger to public health

00:00 / 00:20:21

The Trump administration would roll back Obama-era fuel-efficiency mandates through the Safer Affordable Fuel-Efficient — SAFE — Vehicles rule. A recent meeting of the U.S. House Oversight Environment Subcommittee dubbed the proposal “Trump’s Wrong Turn on Clean Cars.” But one expert testifying during the hearing pushed back against that narrative. Marlo Lewis, senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, says the SAFE Vehicles rule poses no danger to public health. He says the Trump administration plan also would remove California’s de facto power to regulate national fuel-economy standards. Lewis shares his research on the topic with Mitch Kokai.
