The final rule includes numerous changes that ACT recommended, including a focus on people rather than vehicles and a greenhouse gas emissions metric. ACT will issue more detailed comments on the 300-page rule in the coming weeks, but some highlights are listed below. Please stay tuned for a separate legislative alert and webinar notice that will be sent out next week.
