President Barack Obama directed the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today to reconsider a Bush-era decision that stopped California and more than a dozen other states from setting their own stricter limits on auto emissions.

Thirteen states have adopted California's rules, and four others are considering them. Florida is one of those four.

Jerry Karnas is the Florida Climate Project Director with the Environmental Defense Fund. He says Gov. Charlie Crist has been a very vocal leader on the California Clean Car standard.
