On April 24, the European Parliament Environment Committee approved a proposal to tighten carbon dioxide emissions for new cars by a vote of 47-17. The plan, which was proposed by the European Commission in July 2012, would require new cars to not emit more than 95 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer by 2020. The committee also amended the proposal, requesting the Commission to study the feasibility of setting the target to 68 to 78 grams per kilometer by 2025.
