U.S. Senate Passes Resolution that would Overturn Highway Emissions Rule

The United States Senate voted 53-47 to overturn a rule previously issued by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The rule requires states to calculate greenhouse gas emissions caused by highway usage. It also requires each state to set targets, determined by the state, to reduce those emissions. There are no penalties for not complying.

President Biden announced that he intends to veto the measure, S.J. Res. 61, if it passes the U.S. House of Representatives.
