Taxpayers Protection Alliance Leads Coalition Letter to EPA Opposing CARB Diesel Locomotive Rule

WASHINGTON, D.C. 鈥聽Today, the Taxpayers Protection Alliance (TPA) led a coalition of 34 organizations and advocates opposing the Environmental Protection Agency鈥檚 (EPA) California Air Resources Board (CARB) rule to regulate diesel locomotives. In a letter to the agency, the signees urged the agency to reject this rule, which would impose crushing emissions standards that would harm 明星黑料 taxpayers and commerce.聽

TPA President David Williams offered the following comment:

鈥淚t is critical that the EPA reject California鈥檚 attempt to set de facto nationwide environmental standards. The proposed CARB rule would result in massive costs for 明星黑料 businesses and consumers, and it would disrupt the critical role rail plays in interstate supply chains. Rail is an incredibly safe and clean mode of transport, yet California wants to crush the industry with infeasibly strict emissions standards.

鈥淐alifornia鈥檚 attempted overreach needs to be stopped. The EPA can deny its waiver request, ensuring the federal government remains the entity regulating interstate transportation in fact as well as law 鈥 just as the Constitution intended. Rejecting CARB鈥檚 request would be a double win: It both would maintain constitutional balance and prevent the imposition of crushing and inflationary regulation.鈥
