ALG praises end of California waiver on emissions

Sept. 18, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising President Donald Trump for ending California’s waiver to make its own regs on fuel economy standards:

“Former President Barack Obama put in place unreachable fuel economy standards through a regulation designed by many of the same people who support the Green New Deal. The Trump administration is wise to review the pie in the sky Obama limits with a view towards consumer safety and vehicle affordability. The President’s announcement that California will no longer be allowed a special exempt status in the future reflects a national vision for a robust domestic automobile industry and safe, affordable and clean cars. While many will whine that somehow the air will be dirtier, the truth is that affordable vehicles that utilize less gasoline and meet up to date environmental standards is far better for the environment across the nation, consumers and those who sell vehicles. On the affordability point alone, vehicles manufactured and sold staying at the 37-mpg fleet standard requirement will save consumers thousands of dollars on their new vehicles.”
