Take Action Against Federal Government Policies To Ban Gasoline & Diesel Vehicles
The House of Representatives is considering a vote on three important pieces of legislation. We need members and supporters from our industry to help ensure they come up for a vote by contacting our members of Congress. Here’s more about the legislation:
- H.R. 4468, The Choice in Automobile Retail Sales Act would stop EPA’s recent proposal to require roughly 70% of new car and truck sales to be “zero tailpipe emission” in less than 10 years. EPA’s proposal, which ignores every category of emissions except for tailpipe emissions, is a de facto ban on liquid-fuel-powered cars and trucks and, by extension, the American-made fuels they run on.
- H.R. 1435, The Preserving Choice in Vehicle Purchases Act would stop EPA from giving California the green light to enact its ban on gas and diesel vehicles. California, and the roughly 20 states that copy California (including Pennsylvania), cannot ban vehicles and fuels or mandate the electrification of semi-trucks, for instance, without EPA permission. This policy makes clear that EPA can’t grant that permission if it’s going to be used to ban or restrict liquid-fuel-powered vehicles.
- H.R. 4469, The No Fuel Credits for Batteries Act makes clear that EPA does not have the authority to add an electric vehicle provision to the RFS, a long-standing liquid fuel policy meant to support U.S. energy security and American-grown biofuels. Any decision to expand or redirect the RFS in this way needs to come from Congress.
