Trudmp's new gas mileage under attack

Environmentalists are pointing to newly released documents as further proof the Trump administration is making a bad decision in seeking to ease toughening fuel-economy rules.

The internal documents show disagreements between the nation's top environmental regulator, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Transportation Department's auto safety arm, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, when it comes to drafting a new policy over fuel economy.

In one June 18 memo, for instance, the EPA quibbles with the expected benefits of the proposed standards. It states elements of them are "detrimental to safety, rather than beneficial." The agency also questioned some of the facts and statistics underlying NHTSA's proposal to lower the standards.
