Update: Biofuels, thought to be good for reducing the nation’s use of fossil fuels, create new problems. Strong fuel economy standards are still the right answer.
Scott Pruitt, the former head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, repeatedly stated his interest in rolling back corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) standards, which require automakers to achieve certain fuel economy standards across their fleets. The acting EPA administrator, Andrew Wheeler, is continuing the fight against CAFE standards and has just released plans to freeze fuel economy standards rather than pursuing better, more efficient standards.
Roll Backs Would Be Bad
Rolling back fuel economy standards would jeopardize the public’s health, degrade our shared environment and deter economic opportunities within our state. This is not the direction the EPA should be heading, which is why we all need to speak out against this plan!
Take Action Today!
Before the Oct. 2 deadline, tell the EPA that you support more fuel-efficient vehicles and existing CAFE standards.
