California Sen. Dianne Feinstein led 22 fellow senators in a letter to Chao and Wheeler on Tuesday calling on them to end a challenge of California’s waiver authority to set its own vehicle emission standards. “The changes you have proposed … are not supported by federal law and will only result in higher costs for the American consumer,” the senators wrote ahead of the Friday comment deadline for the SAFE Vehicle rule.
