House should pass S.J. Res. 11 to overturn new EPA regulation on truck emissions

May 23, 2023, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the U.S. House of Representatives to pass S.J. Res. 11, providing for congressional disapproval under chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, of the rule submitted by the Environmental Protection Agency relating to “Control of Air Pollution From New Motor Vehicles: Heavy-Duty Engine and Vehicle Standards”:

“America has been racked with supply chain disruptions throughout the Biden Administration. Some of these were a result of production failures in China and elsewhere, some were the result of California laws impacting the delivery of products from the docks to the rest of the country, and some were a result of the time it took to get the supply system flowing again after Covid.  However, there is no excuse for the Biden administration to put forward a regulatory standard which deliberately sabotages the ability of our nation’s trucking system to function in the future.

“It is not the EPA’s job to destroy and distort markets as this regulation would do, and Americans for Limited Government strongly urges the House to join the Senate in disapproving the ‘Control of Air Pollution from New Motor Vehicles: heavy-Duty Engine and Vehicle Standards’ regulation by passing S.J. Res. 11.”
