EPA’s hard-fought climate rule for cars expected next week

The Biden administration is expected to unveil the final version of one of its most pivotal climate rules next week — a clean car rule that could result in two-thirds of new passenger vehicles sold in 2032 running on electricity.

The announcement concerns “EPA’s work to address climate change, improve air quality and protect public health,” according to the invite, which POLITICO’s E&E News reviewed.
