“President Obama’s bold action today marks a major advance towards a more sustainable environment and less oil-dependent economy,” said Gov. Brown. “As Attorney General, I sued the Bush Administration and major automobile companies so that California could adopt the bold emissions standards on which these new federal standards are based.
