Alliance Statement Re: EPA, DOT Reconsideration of GHG Standards for Cars and Light Trucks


Mitch Bainwol, President & CEO, issued this statement in response to the joint EPA/NHTSA announcement on the opening of a comment period:

“With this announcement, the Administration is fulfilling its commitment to reinstate the midterm evaluation of future vehicle fuel economy and greenhouse gas standards. This review is important to consumers nationwide who want government to rely on the facts to drive improvements in fuel economy. We’re delighted to see the two federal agencies align and coordinate their programs, and we thank Secretary Chao and Administrator Pruitt for working closely together to harmonize a review driven by the most current data, consumer preferences and marketplace realities. We look forward to joining in with other stakeholders, including California, to ensure this program remains a success.”
