    Segment Transcript

    So the EPA is proposing new emissions standards starting in 2027 and they want to know what you think. I talked to Consumer Reports’ Chris Harto and he says the EPA is taking your input along with auto manufacturers. Harto: "There is a proposal there and they're taking public comments for about the next two months. So they're taking comments from groups like Consumer Reports, the automakers, the public, anybody can tell the EPA what they think about this rule. The EPA is going to then read through all of those comments that they get, evaluate it, go back to the drawing board and kind of figure out well what did they get wrong, what did the get right, what do they need to change to make this rule really work for the country. And then they'll release a final rule sometime probably around the end of the year,  beginning of next year and it will go into effect for vehicles built in model year 2027, a few years down the road."  Don’t hold back. it's EPA.gov. With today's Auto News  I'm Laura Reynolds.
