Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) has introduced S. 1273, legislation that rolls back popular and successful fuel efficiency standards that have been working, spurring innovation, investment in the auto industry, reducing our dependence on foreign oil and cutting dangerous carbon pollution in the air that harms health.
Senators Jerry Moran (R-KS), Todd Young (R-IN), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Gary Peters (D-MI), and Claire McCaskill (D-MO) have also joined the bill. This legislation places the interests of the auto industry ahead of the interests of American families, who want clean air and vehicles that go farther on a gallon of gasoline.
Under the guise of “harmonizing” vehicle programs, this bill mounts a serious and direct attack on important standards that protect our health, save American families money, reduce foriegn oil consumption, and improve our national security.
