Washington, D.C. – Former EPA Administrator and League of Conservation Voters Board Chair Carol M. Browner released the following statement on the Trump administration’s upcoming attack on the Clean Car Standards:

“Gutting the Clean Car Standards will cost consumers money at the gas pump, make our air dirtier and delay our transition to a clean energy economy. By reportedly challenging state authority under the Clean Air Act, Trump is proving once again that his EPA only cares about protecting profits for Big Oil – depriving more than 113 million people of commonsense pollution limits their states have already enacted. This is nothing more than a transparent sellout to fossil fuels and we’ll fight it with everything we’ve got.”
