Fed­er­al reg­u­la­tors have released pro­posed fuel econ­o­my and vehi­cle emis­sions stan­dards that were pre­vi­ous­ly announced in May by Pres­i­dent Barack Oba­ma. The announce­ment pre­cedes upcom­ing inter­na­tion­al talks on glob­al cli­mate change and could serve as a con­crete step for­ward in the administration’s efforts to reduce green­house gas emis­sions.
