Press Release
WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) issued the following statement in response to the Trump administration’s decision to roll back some of the Environmental Protection Agency’s fuel economy standards.

“The Trump administration’s dangerous disregard for environmental science is now becoming harmful to the economy,” Rep. Bass. “Fuel efficient vehicles help drivers with low costs at the gas pump and emit fewer harmful emissions. Rolling back vehicle emission standards that have helped drive US carbon pollution to its lowest level in decades is a threat to the economy as other countries race ahead investing in clean energy and combating climate change.”
