Washington, D.C.- Following reports that the Trump administration plans to revoke state authority to regulate emissions from cars, the League of Conservation Voters released the following statement from Clean Energy Program Director Sara Jordan:


“For four decades, states have had the right under the Clean Air Act to protect their residents from dangerous air pollution. The Trump Administration’s latest rollback is attacking a basic public health protection that has been successfully cleaning up the air we breathe since it was passed into law. This move flies in the face of public opinion, science, and logic – even the auto industry opposes it. LCV will continue to work with Governors, state legislators, and local elected officials to fight for clean air and move our country to a clean energy economy.”
