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, which the Trump administration is planning to begin to roll back as soon as today:

“Rolling back the clean car standards simply does not make sense. These safeguards are already protecting our health and environment, saving consumers money at the gas pump, and reducing our dependence on foreign oil. In other words, they are working exactly as they were designed. This roll back is just another thinly veiled attempt by Scott Pruitt to protect industry while putting our health and environment at risk.”
