National Emissions Standards Act
The National Emissions Standards Act of 1965, originally known as Motor Vehicle Pollution Control Act is a federal framework within which automobile pollution has been regulated. The purpose of the act was to establish a national automobile pollution standard. The act required that the Secretary of the Department of Health, Education and Environment consider technological feasibility and economic costs and prescribe emissions standards for any pollutant deemed a threat to human health and welfare. It vests a good deal of power in the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency to issue emissions standards regulations based on human health. The act empowered the administrator to regulate and even prohibit fuel additives that endangered health and welfare.
