The proposal's intended impact is for 67 percent of light-vehicles sold in the United States by 2032 to electric vehicles (EVs). OMB is responsible for overseeing and implementing the President's vision across the executive branch.

UPDATED JAN. 23, 2024:

Sixteen Republican governors signed a joint letter urging President Biden to put an end to efforts to move forward with its tailpipe rules proposal. The governors describe the proposal as "unrealistic", "costly", and a "prescriptive" solution that harms American consumers.

The governors of Arkansas, Idaho, Iowa, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Wyoming signed the letter.
