WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Environmental Protection Agency confirmed on Wednesday that it would reopen a review of whether the Obama administration’s 2022-2025 vehicle emission rules are feasible, a victory for automakers who have urged the Trump administration to reverse a January decision to maintain standards. .

The EPA said it would make a determination in April 2018 after the Obama administration sought to fix the rules in January. Environmentalists say the rules save fuel and reduce greenhouse gases. “These standards are expensive for automakers and the American people,” EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt said in a statement.
