BREAKING NEWS: U.S. House of Representatives Schedules Vote on Bill to Stop California’s ICE Vehicle Ban
DON’T DELAY! Please contact your U.S. Representative to request they vote for H.R. 1435:
Overview: The U.S. House of Representatives announced that it will vote in the coming days on the “Preserving Choice in Vehicle Purchases Act” (H.R. 1435). This SAN-supported bill seeks to preserve vehicle choice for consumers and prevent the federal government and the State of California from choosing only one form of technology (such as electric vehicles) over the many others to achieve their emission reduction goals.
The "Preserving Choice in Vehicle Purchases Act" prohibits the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from issuing a waiver to California for regulations that would ban the sale or use of new motor vehicles with ICE in the state by 2035. The bill is essential to stopping California's plan to ban new ICE vehicles, which limits vehicle choice in states around the country. 17 states have followed all or part of California’s previous clean-car rules adopting similar proposals.
The House Energy & Commerce Committee passed H.R. 1435 in July by a margin of 26-22. The vote on the floor of the House will be close, which is why we need your help NOW! Please end a letter to your U.S. Representative asking them to vote in support of the “Preserving Choice in Vehicle Purchases Act.”
