EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt is re-opening the review of clean car standards to get a chance at slashing fuel efficiency standards and slamming the brakes on clean car progress. We need to tell the EPA that Mainers support clean car standards because they protect our public health and our environment while saving consumers money.
Transportation is the largest source of climate-changing carbon pollution in Maine. In 2012, the nation took a big step finalizing standards to reduce carbon pollution and increase fuel efficiency for new passenger vehicles in model years 2017-2025. When fully implemented, these clean car standards would nearly double fuel efficiency, stop six billion metric tons of dangerous tailpipe pollution, and save drivers thousands of dollars in fuel costs. Less than a year ago, government agencies thoroughly reviewed these standards and decided to keep them as they are until 2025.
Now, the Trump Administration is reopening the review—and wasting taxpayer money—to get his chance to slash these standards and slam the brakes on clean car progress. Today, the EPA opened its public comment period. Using the form below, tell the EPA that you want cleaner car standards.
