The California Construction Trucking Association (CCTA) is fighting a legal battle against the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) new regulations for trucks operating in California. The CARB’s guidelines will likely require most diesel-powered trucks operating in California to be replaced entirely in order to comply with 2010 EPA emissions standards for vehicles operating on California’s roads.
According to the CCTA, this regulation violates federal laws, which prevent states from creating laws which affect the price, routes, or services of motor carriers. However, because of EPA regulations which were released after the original litigation began, the state-federal distinction has become confused, and it may be some time before there is any certainty about the state of trucking regulation in California.
