EV Mandates Off-the-Rails

The state of CA has gone off the rails with a new mandate that all freight trains in the state be zero-emission trains by 2035. Given that currently ALL the freight engines in the country are diesel, the CA mandate poses an all-but-insurmountable challenge to carriers that operate there, like BNSF.  Lena Kent, General Director of Public Affairs for BNSF Railway joins us to talk about how the industry is fighting back against an EV mandate that is sure to wreak havoc to the supply chains of the west.

Also on the agenda is a discussion with Will Hupman of the American Petroleum Institute, which is among the industry leaders pushing back on new tailpipe emission standards from the Biden Administration that API says are aimed at banning gas vehicles altogether.
