"Biden Vetoes Congressional Effort To Ax Truck Pollution Rule"

"President Biden on Wednesday vetoed a congressional effort to overturn his administration’s rule governing pollution from heavy-duty vehicles including trucks and buses.

Biden, in a veto message, defended the rule that Republicans and a handful of Democrats sought to overturn.

“The rule cuts pollution, boosts public health, and advances environmental justice in communities across the country.  It will prevent hundreds, if not thousands, of premature deaths; thousands of childhood asthma cases; and millions of missed school days every year,” he said in the message to Congress."
