Breaking: President Trump is expected Wednesday to revoke a decades-old rule that empowers California to set tougher car pollution standards than those required by the federal government.  https://www.latimes.com/environment/story/2019-09-17/trump-revokes-california-environmental-authority-auto-deal 

This would put the state and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on a path to years of fighting in court.  https://www.latimes.com/environment/story/2019-09-17/trump-revokes-california-environmental-authority-auto-deal 

The rule change is expected to be finalized a few months after California spurned the White House by secretly negotiating a deal with four major automakers.  https://www.latimes.com/politics/story/2019-07-25/california-reaches-climate-deal-with-automakers-spurning-trump 

California has embraced its role as chief antagonist to Trump on a variety of environmental policies, suing the administration repeatedly over its agenda of dismantling Obama-era environmental and public health regulations.  https://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-california-trump-environmental-lawsuits-20190507-story.html
