This seems like an infringement on State's rights. I don't think I am in favor of it.

Smog laws ruined cars for decades, but now days CA CARB makes tuning aggravating; Gotta find CARB legal parts unless you want to wrench before and after smog inspections. Don't even get me started on the CHP's statist crap over pipes.

Good. California is dangerously close to becoming a failed state by First-World standards. That state government has proven that it should not be setting standards for ANYTHING.

Comrade Trump is expanding his executive powers! I approve of his Stalinism.

The EPA cannot overrule state emission standards. They can only set national standards as they relate to federal facilities. California can just tax vehicles that don't meet the state standards through vehicle licences. Want to buy a car that doesn't meet them? Fine, your tag will cost you $200 a month.
