Statement of EDF senior attorney Martha Roberts – January 15, 2020

Sharyn Stein, 202-572-3396,

The Trump administration’s damaging plan to roll back our nation’s popular and successful Clean Car Standards has just been sent to the Office of Management and Budget – a big step toward finalizing it. (See it here and here).

EDF released the following statement:

“Rolling back our Clean Car Standards will hurt America. Clean cars reduce dangerous air pollution, strengthen our energy security by conserving oil, and save families hard-earned money at the gas pump. Investing in cleaner cars means more American jobs and a stronger economy. The Trump administration should hit the brakes on this deeply harmful rollback.”
