Clean Cars

Driver's view of the side mirror while car is moving.

For nearly ten years, the Attorney General, together with the California Air Resources Board (CARB), has fought hard to ensure that California is able to enforce its own "clean car" standards and that the federal government does its job to require increased fuel efficiency.

Cleaner cars and fuels give consumers more options in the marketplace and at the pump, help to reduce smog and its related health impacts, and cut down on greenhouse gas pollution that leads to climate change.

The Attorney General's "clean car" work includes fighting for better federal fuel efficiency standards and defending California’s greenhouse gas (GHG) standards for motor vehicle emissions AB 1493, commonly known as the "Pavley" law.

The Attorney General is also defending against challenges to regulations adopted by CARB under California’s landmark Global Warming Solutions Act , commonly called AB 32. The Attorney General currently is defending against a challenge to the State’s innovative Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) brought by trade associations representing oil and ethanol producers and oil refiners. At the end of 2011, a federal trial court issued an order blocking enforcement of the LCFS, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals granted California's motion for a stay of the trial court's order, which allowed the LCFS to stay in place uninterrupted.  In September 2013,, the Court of Appeals reversed the trial court's decision, ruling in favor of ARB and rejecting on several of plaintiffs' claims.  Read the Opinion, pdf.  The case is now back in the trial court for resolution of the plaintiffs' remaining claims.  Thanks in large part to the work of the Attorney General, the LCFS is now in its fifth year of successful operation.  That success inspired Oregon to adopt a similar law. The Oregon law is now facing a related attack, which the Attorney General is assisting in its defending
