A lawsuit against the California Air Resources Board’s truck and emissions regulations continued this week as the plaintiff California Construction Trucking Association filed an appeal with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit after a ruling in December came in favor of neither CARB nor CCTA, said the association in an announcement Tuesday.
CCTA is taking CARB to task over the fact that it places most of the equipment upgrade or enhancement costs onto the truck owners with year-to-year tightening emissions and equipment regulations and deems trucks that are EPA compliant as non-compliant in its state. CCTA also alleges that CARB regulations violate the Federal Aviation Administration Authorization Act by affecting prices, routes and services of other motor carriers and, further, violates the commerce clause of the U.S. Constitution.
