Washington, D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters released the following statement on the Trump administration’s plan to gut the Clean Car Standards from Senior Vice President for Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld:

“This proposal makes clear that just like Scott Pruitt, Andrew Wheeler is full speed ahead for corporate polluters. The Clean Car Standards have saved drivers more than $60 billion while helping clean up our air and fight climate change. Gutting this innovation-spurring policy is nothing more than a transparent sellout to Big Oil, and we will fight the Trump administration at every step.”
