Nebraska Is One Of 12 States That Have Sued The Biden Administration

On Thursday, Nebraska Attorney General Mike Hilgers became a member of a coalition of thirteen states that filed a lawsuit against the administration of Vice President Joe Biden.

In their argument, the states contend that the new tailpipe emission limits for new passenger vehicles and light-duty trucks violate the Administrative Procedure Act and go beyond the authority of the Department of Energy.

As reported by CBS, the regulations will be implemented for new passenger cars and light-duty trucks beginning with model years 2027 through 2032 that are manufactured.

Hilgers stated that it is about defending the use of ethanol in Nebraska and alleged that President Biden is proposing a rule that exaggerates the efficiency of electric cars by a factor of more than six. According to Hilgers, “this illegal bolstering of electric vehicles hurts car owners, car manufacturers, producers of liquid fuel, and the electric grid.”

Despite the efforts of the Biden administration to force automobile manufacturers to produce a greater number of electric vehicles, a decreasing number of people in the United States are even interested in purchasing them. The United States Department of Energy (DOE) abused its authority by drafting a new rule that would require automobile manufacturers to increase their production of electric vehicles or face financial penalties. The law is detrimental to the free market, and if it continues to be enforced, Nebraskans will be forced to pay more for automobiles that are of lower quality, according to Hilgers.

The state of Nebraska, together with the states of Arkansas, Florida, Iowa, Idaho, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, and the American Free Enterprise Chamber of Commerce, joined the lawsuit.
