ABC News' Sunlen Miller reports:

This morning, President Obama will sign a presidential memorandum “outlining the next steps in his vision for cleaner, more efficient vehicles,” the White House says.

An administration official says the president will direct the EPA and DOT to create a national policy to increase fuel efficiency and decrease greenhouse gas pollution from medium- and heavy-duty trucks for model years 2014-2018, and an extension of the national program for cars and light-duty trucks to model year 2017 and beyond.

In the afternoon, the president will have his weekly private lunch with Vice President Biden in the Private Dining Room.
