President Barack Obama’s administration proposed tougher mileage standards for medium- and heavy-duty trucks Friday, the latest move by Obama in his second-term drive to reduce pollution blamed for global warming.

The second phase of standards intended to cut carbon pollution and improve fuel efficiency among medium and large trucks is expected to lower greenhouse gas emissions by 1 billion metric tons and trim fuel costs by $170 billion over the lives of vehicles produced, according to the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
