TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Several environmental groups will display cars in the courtyard of the State Capitol that would meet a new clean emissions standard being proposed by Gov. Charlie Crist.

Representatives from the Sierra Club, Florida Wildlife Federation, Earthjustice and Florida Audubon will be at the Monday morning event to speak about the cars and the need for the new rule.

The Florida Environmental Regulation Commission is set to vote on the standard Tuesday morning.
