Yay. Just read on TreeHugger that the EPA has finally agreed to let California imposed emissions-standards that exceed the federal requirements. It’s about time the Environmental part of EPA stood up.

We knew it was coming–one of Obama’s first moves was to order the review Bush’s decision to prevent California from setting fuel emissions standards. Then, Obama announced he was setting a national standard–one that would take cues from California’s plan. And now, the cycle is complete: today, California will officially receive permission from the EPA to set its own fuel emissions standard.
