Americans deserve clean air and protection from rising costs at the gas pump, and that’s exactly what the current clean car standards deliver.
Undermining these successful and commonsense standards will allow automakers to manufacture dirtier vehicles that pollute our air, harm our health and drain our pocketbooks.
I strongly oppose the Trump administration's rollback of vehicle fuel economy and greenhouse gas emissions standards and any efforts that would infringe on the longstanding authority of states to protect their citizens from tailpipe pollution.
Fuel economy and greenhouse gas emissions standards (called clean car standards) deliver the clean, fuel-efficient cars that we want and need. The Obama-era rules have already cut pollution and saved consumers $70 billion — and counting! — at the gas pump.
At the behest of Big Oil and automakers, Trump is threatening to roll back these safeguards. This would pollute our air, put lives at risk, and force consumers to spend billions more on gas each year.
Together, we can stop the rollback.
