The Washington Post cites attorney Devin Watkins on the EPA’s proposed rule on greenhouse gas emissions:
Republican-led states and conservative groups, including the Competitive Enterprise Institute, have already sued over the EPA’s earlier emissions standards for cars in model years 2024 through 2026. That litigation is pending at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
“This EPA rule attempts to transform an entire segment of the economy — the market for vehicles — by requiring the production of electric vehicles rather than internal combustion engines,” said Devin Watkins, an attorney at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. “So we do believe that the major questions doctrine is applicable.”
