LCV Statement on Trucks CRA

Apr 26, 2023

Washington D.C. – In response to the final passage vote on Senate Republicans’ Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to overturn EPA’s rule on heavy-duty truck NOx emissions finalized last year, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Vice President of Federal Policy Matthew Davis

“Today’s vote shows yet again that Senate Republicans would choose to poison the air we breathe in order to prop up fossil fuel polluters and their record profits. The Biden-Harris administration’s stronger limits on diesel freight truck pollution will prevent thousands of premature deaths and millions of asthma attacks, and deliver billions of dollars in public health benefits each year. We commend the Biden-Harris administration and EPA Administrator Regan for cutting this health-harming pollution with last year’s rule and look forward to working with them to strengthen and finalize their recent proposal to cut climate pollution from trucks.”
