White House Wants Phase-In of U.N. Maritime Fuel Rules

The Trump administration wants pollution limits on ship fuels to be phased in to protect consumers from any price spikes in heating and trucking fuels. The pollution limits will be implemented in 2020. The administration is not seeking a delay of the rule; it’s asking for a phase-in so that the rule would not have to be fully complied with until an unspecified later date.
