WASHINGTON, DC - Responding to President Obama’s action to allow states to regulate fuel efficiency and tailpipe emissions, LCV President Gene Karpinski said:

"In their first week, President Obama and his Green Dream Team have already started a full-court press to create clean energy jobs, promote energy independence and address global warming.  Giving states the power to regulate tailpipe emissions and moving forward on a national increase in fuel efficiency are the bold and necessary moves we expected from President Obama, who campaigned on the issue of fuel efficiency and fighting global warming.  These moves, coupled with investments to double renewable energy generation, improve our power grid and increase home energy efficiency, will create jobs and lessen our dependence on fossil fuels."
