Bush Opposing States Rights

Siding against states rights to innovate on policy, Bush's Justice Department has filed a motion with a federal appeals court calling for the repeal of California's emission rules that require that a percentage of vehicles sold in the state have zero emissions -- i.e. be electric cars.

That Congress in fact explicitly authorized states to regulate auto emissions is immaterial to the Bushies, whose anti-environment views trump their rhetorical federalism. See more on the case here.
