Yup. The Republican Governor of California, who owns several large SUVS, wants to continue tightening the tailpipe emissions on cars. Auto manufacturers and dealers, who strongly supported his election, are up-in-arms over the Governator's policies. Automakers have said the only way to meet the proposed emission standards is to build smaller cars. Gov. Schwarzenegger didn't offer specifics, but indicated he wants emissions to drop to year 2000 levels by 2010 and to 1990 levels by 2020, and beyond. His tough stance on pollution has his Republican colleagues puzzled to say the least.
