In a press conference, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler, discussed the plan and said California was overstepping its regulatory limits.

(SOUNDBITE) (ENGLISH) ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY ADMINISTRATOR ANDREW WHEELER SAYING: "We embrace federalism and the role of states but federalism does not mean that one state can dictate standards for the entire country.

So we are moving forward with one national fuel economy standard.

We believe the law is clear, no state has the authority to opt out of national fuel economy standards and no state has the authority to set its own fuel economy standards that impact human safety, the environment and commerce for the rest of the country." The move is part of a long-running dispute between California and the Trump administration over the state's ability to set its own rules under the Clean Air Act.
