Public officials in Fresno will hold a national hearing over President Trump's proposed rollback of the state's ability to enforce vehicle emission standards.

In early August, President Trump proposed new fuel-efficiency standards for vehicles that California state officials say will increase vehicle pollution. President Trump's plan also includes rules that would restrict states' rights to create their own vehicle emission standards. The proposed rollbacks are the center of a lawsuit filed by California and 16 other states as well as D.C. 

This is one of three hearings that will be held across the country. The other two hearings will be held in Michigan and Pennsylvania. 

The Fresno hearing will be on Monday, September 24 at 10 a.m. at The Grand 1401.
