The Trump administration is readying proposals to weaken Obama administration automotive fuel economy standards for release as early as next week, said a person familiar with the matter.

The proposals from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will offer several options to pare back the current rules and recommend freezing mileage standards from model years 2020 through 2026, according to the person, who asked not be identified discussing the plans.
