The climate crisis is affecting Vermonters right now.

Vermont’s ability to limit how greenhouse gases enter our environment, like we do with our vehicle emission standards, is a vital tool in the fight against climate change.

Today we filed a lawsuit challenging the federal government's declaration that California’s greenhouse gas emission standards, which have been adopted by Vermont and 11 other states, are preempted by federal law. California’s greenhouse gas emission standards would dramatically reduce the emissions from automobiles into our environment.

We remain committed to fight for our environment and for clean air by opposing this action by the federal government.
