The state air resources board has decided to delay a lawsuit against the Environmental Protection Agency.
The state was trying to obtain the power to regulate emissions from new cars. In April, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the federal EPA has the authority to regulate such matters. According to a press release the state is delaying the lawsuit requesting a waiver from EPA control that the federal courts would have to grant.
