While the Pennsylvania legislature works itself into a foaming snit over the impending adoption of California emissions standards, bearded Central Penna resident Francis Volpe speaks of the merits of adopting CARB's edicts. Notably, he points to the 9% reduction in emissions over Federal Tier II standards, and notes that many of the same arguments were trotted out every time a new legal mandate on emissions has come down. The one real issue here, and we think it's a valid one, is that of states' rights. While we imagine the CARB-stats adoption will go ahead as planned, we're curious to see how it will play out on the East Coast where the states are smaller and less self-sufficient.
