EPA being sued by multiple states against phasing out of gas trucks

Missouri is joining 19 other states in suing the Environmental Protection Agency for backing a California law that will phase out most gas-powered trucks by 2045. Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey announced Monday that his is the 20th state to challenge the EPA’s decision to allow California to phase out medium- and heavy-duty, gas-powered vehicles while phasing in electric vehicles. Bailey's office described the law as an illegal ban. "I will always fight to protect Missouri businesses, and that includes the trucking community that is vital to the success of our state," Bailey said in a statement. "Joe Biden is partnering with California to attempt to upend Missouri’s economy through the federal administrative state, and my office isn’t going to stand for it."https://www.foxnews.com/politics/missouri-joins-19-states-suing-biden-admin-over-californias-gas-truck-phaseout?intcmp=tw_fnc

    Is there any better reason to make EPA avert its decision?There's absolutely none and in any case this agency should be accorded the necessary aid to help them instill even tougher regulations that could necessitate even bigger and drastic changes.

      Transitioning to electric vehicles in the transportation sector is considered a crucial step in achieving these goals.

        2045 is even way too long into the future but nevertheless EPA is legitimately right in its decision and should not be wavered whatsoever.

                Hi, why is this a climate love? California is phasing out fossil fuel cars and Missouri wants to dismantle that. I think the climate warning should be going to Missouri
