Press Conference on Clean Car Standards
the Sierra Club joined by Madison Mayor Paul Soglin, Dane County Executive Joe Parisi, and other community leaders call on the Trump administration to maintain federal clean car standards. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt directed his agency to review these standards with the likely intention of weakening them. Speakers will also thank U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin for protecting public health by standing up for these standards. Rolling back these popular and effective standards would negatively impact Wisconsin’s drivers, economy, and environment. America’s clean car standards, which were finalized in 2012, help ensure that cars, pickup trucks, and SUVs are more fuel-efficient, saving drivers money every trip to the gas station. The standards could also create more than 6,000 jobs for Wisconsin. Cleaner, more efficient vehicles also reduce air pollution and combat climate change – helping to prevent harmful health impacts like asthma attacks triggered by dirty air. Speakers will urge the Trump administration to keep these standards and point to local efforts to protect public health and save taxpayers money.
