The Hill –

A group representing several automakers including Toyota, Hyundai, and Fiat Chrysler is exiting a legal fight over whether California can set its own vehicle emissions standards, the group said Tuesday.  The move comes just one day after the Biden administration requested a pause in the litigation, in which the automakers had intervened to support the federal government’s move to block California from setting tighter standards.  The administration had identified the Trump administration’s move as one it would seek to review and potentially reverse.
