U.S. Senate Companion Bill Introduced to Stop EPA Tailpipe Mandate
DON’T DELAY! Please contact lawmakers to request their support for this legislation:
Overview: U.S. Senators Mike Crapo (R-ID) and Pete Ricketts (R-NE) introduced a SAN-supported bill, the Choice in Automobile Retail Sales (CARS) Act (S. 3094), to prohibit the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from finalizing emissions standards that would limit consumer choice and require that 67% of vehicles that automakers produce be electric vehicles. S. 3094 is the companion to H.R. 4468, which was introduced by U.S. Rep. Tim Walberg (R-MI) and passed the House Energy and Commerce Committee in July.
The CARS Act prevents future EPA vehicle emissions regulations that would mandate certain technologies or limit the availability of vehicles based on its power source. If passed into law, the bill would ensure that consumers have the freedom to decide what vehicle works best for their families and prevent automakers from being forced to meet unrealistic mandates driven by the most aggressive light-duty emissions regulations in U.S. history.
