Washington, D.C. – Former EPA Administrator and League of Conservation Voters Board Chair Carol M. Browner released the following statement on the Clean Car Standards, following dishonest claims by the auto industry before the House Energy and Commerce Committee today:

“I strongly oppose the Fuel Economy Harmonization Act and any other legislation that would weaken standards that improve fuel efficiency and reduce dangerous pollution from vehicles –  implying otherwise is misleading and dishonest. America’s clean car standards have dramatically improved the fuel efficiency of vehicles, saving consumers billions of dollars and cutting pollution in the process. Instead of rolling back commonsense, successful and popular clean cars standards, we should focus on innovation and technology that will continue the auto industry’s growth and the pollution reductions we’ve achieved since these standards were first established.”
