EPA Reconsideration of SAFE Vehicles Rule Part 1

As directed in President Biden’s Executive Order 13990 on “Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis,” and in response to requests by states and other stakeholders, today the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is seeking public input on its reconsideration of the Agency’s 2019 action titled The Safer Affordable Fuel-Efficient Vehicles Rule Part One: One National Program Rule (SAFE-1) for the purposes of rescinding the action taken by the prior administration.

This follows a separate but related April 22 proposal from the Department of Transportation seeking to withdraw a rule from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) deeming such state programs preempted under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA).
