EPA hearing on Calif. emission limits

WASHINGTON, D.C. /*Mary Nichols*/, chairperson of the state air resources Board, told an /*Environmental Protection Agency*/ hearing Thursday that pollution problems in California will worsen, if the state can't control greenhouse gases from vehicles.

Greenhouse gases are blamed for global warming, but the /*Bush Administration*/ blocked California officials from setting such standards last year.
