Tougher Auto Emission Standards Face Opposition

February 17th, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

A joint House-Senate committee has dampened one of the Governors legislative priorities.

The Governor is pushing the adoption of tougher auto emission standards developed by California. The joint legislative panel now says it is unconstitutional for Florida to let other states set our policies. Today, Crist called their decision over thinking.

I dont know that theres so much of a problem with it, Crist said. I think we just need to control our emissions and make sure that were protecting the air. Im excited about the possible success we could have this session with that initiative.

Passage of the emission plan has always been a long shot. It is opposed by every large car maker in the country.
