California Attorney General Xavier Becerra and 16 other Attorneys General sued the EPA over CAFE mandates.

Less than 24 hours. That’s how long it took for California and 16 other states to respond to the Environmental Protection Agency’s plan to roll back fuel economy standards and revoke California’s ability to set its own mileage and emissions mandates.

The 17 states filed suit in the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
