LCV Statement on Trump’s order on Car Emission Standards

Washington, DC: In anticipation of President Trump’s upcoming order for EPA to review auto emission standards, LCV issued the following statement from Tiernan Sittenfeld, SVP for Government Affairs:

“This is no time to shift cleaner car standards into reverse. These commonsense clean cars standards are already doing their job to protect consumers, protect our health and climate, and reduce our oil consumption. Big oil companies and auto executives may be breathing easier today, but that’s no comfort to the millions of drivers who will pay more at the gas pump or the tens of thousands of Americans whose asthma attacks will increase if Donald Trump and Scott Pruitt get their way. That is precisely why we will fight tooth and nail to keep the stronger standards in place.”
