ENGINE MFRS. ASS'N v. S. COAST AIR QUALITY MGMT. DIST., 02-1343

Local Fleet Rules generally prohibiting the purchase or lease by various public and private fleet operators of vehicles that do not comply with stringent emission requirements appear to be preempted, in whole or in part, by section 209(a) of the Clean Air Act. The Rules do not escape preemption just because they address the purchase of vehicles, rather than their manufacture or sale.
