Low Emission Vehicles: The Pursuit of a Regional Program
Assignment: You are a staff analyst to the Assistant EPA Administrator for Air and Radiation Mary Nichols. She has asked you to prepare a memo that evaluates the OTC LEV program and the counterproposal from the automobile industry, the Fed LEV program. The memo should provide guidance on whether or not to adopt the OTC recommendations and impose the OTC LEV program on member states.

How should the EPA rule with regards to the OTC recommendation?

Should the ZEV mandate be an integral part of the proposed standards?

How should the EPA deal with the Fed LEV option?
Your memo should be no longer than 8 – 10 pages.
