California becomes an emissions battleground

WASHINGTON — EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, departing from his federalist track record, has launched a first strike against the so-called California waiver, publicly questioning the state's right under the Clean Air Act to set stricter air-quality standards than the rest of the nation.

How well that waiver withstands the federal fire could have big implications for the auto industry and the administration's effort to relax emissions and fuel economy rules.

In announcing his decision last week to rewrite the nationwide emissions standards negotiated with the auto industry under the Obama administration for 2022-25 vehicles, Pruitt signaled that his idea of a revised harmonized program would require California to buckle to national standards developed by the EPA and NHTSA, rather than a compromise among the parties on tweaks that would still give automakers more flexibility with compliance.

"Cooperative federalism doesn't mean that one state can dictate standards for the rest of the country," Pruitt said in a statement. "EPA will set a national standard for greenhouse gas emissions that allows auto manufacturers to make cars that people both want and can afford — while still expanding environmental and safety benefits of newer cars."

Yet the pro-business EPA chief, who faces battles on a number of fronts, is also mindful of automakers' desire for a program that would allow them to sell the same vehicles in all 50 states. Agency officials were continuing to negotiate with California regulators last week on how to preserve some measure of uniformity under relaxed federal standards, The New York Times reported.

The most potent bargaining chip — for both sides — is the California waiver. As long as California has one for emissions rules, it can complicate the administration's efforts to relax the 2022-25 standards. But as long as the EPA has some power to revoke the waiver, it can try to persuade California to stand down.

Oklahoma orders cut in water injection after earthquakes

The Oklahoma Corporation Commission has directed a wastewater disposal well to reduce its volume of injection after more than a dozen earthquakes rattled part of northwest Oklahoma since Friday.

The U.S. Geological Survey recorded three quakes Monday, including one near Covington now rated magnitude 4.5 after a preliminary rating of 4.3. Magnitude 3.3 and 2.8 quakes were also recorded Monday in the area about 55 miles (90 kilometers) north of Oklahoma City.

Garfield County Emergency Management Director Mike Honigsberg says there are no reports of injury or severe damage. Damage typically begins with magnitude 4.0 or stronger earthquakes, but Honigsberg notes that the area is very rural.

Many of the thousands of earthquakes in Oklahoma in recent years have been linked to wastewater injection by oil and natural gas producers.
