Florida Joins Other States Suing to Block Biden, EPA’s Green New Deal-Inspired Emissions Rules

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody joined a coalition of state attorney generals to file suit against the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its new regulations on emissions for gas-powered passenger cars, light-duty trucks and medium-duty vehicles. Moody said the new rules impose “unworkable emissions standards.”

Moody also criticized the Biden-led Electric Vehicle Mandate on automobile manufacturers that require EV’s to account for nearly 70% of car sales in less than a decade. Based on the latest data from Kelley Blue Book, EV’s held a 7.6% share of the total U.S. vehicle market in 2023.

In an official statement, Moody warned that Biden’s push for 70% EVs hurts the American economy by threatening jobs, raising prices and undermining the reliability of the electric grid. 

“Biden’s EPA continues to push radical Green New Deal policies at a time when the infrastructure is not in place and Americans are struggling economically due to Biden-created inflation,” Moody said. “Despite these concerns, Biden is trying to force a more than 60% increase in EV car sales over the next decade. We continue to fight Biden’s short-sighted and out-of-touch policies—taking legal action today to protect Americans from these outrageous emissions standards.”

A Gallup poll released just this month showed fewer Americans said they would consider buying an EV, with almost half (48%) saying they would not purchase one.  Amid shrinking consumer demand, Ford Motor Company lost about $4.7 billion on EVs last year and projects even worse losses this year.

Attorney General Moody, along with the attorney general of the following states filed the lawsuit: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming.
