S.J. Res. 11, a joint resolution providing for Congressional disapproval under chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, of the rule submitted by the Environmental Protection Agency relating to “Control of Air Pollution From New Motor Vehicles: Heavy-Duty
S.J. Res. 11 would void the final rule, “Control of Air Pollution From New Motor Vehicles: Heavy-Duty Engine and Vehicle Standards,” submitted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and published in the Federal Register on January 24, 2023. The rule, which took effect on March 27, 2023, imposes new standards aimed at reducing emissions of ozone, particulate matter, and other air pollutants from heavy-duty engines and would require all manufacturers to meet the new standard by model year 2027.
Under current law, engine and vehicle manufacturers pay fees when a new heavy-duty engine or vehicle is submitted to EPA for certification of conformance with emission standards. Using information from EPA, CBO estimates that enacting S.J. Res. 11 would not change the certification requirement or the collection of the related fees.
