Contact Congress: Stop EPA from banning cars and trucks that run on liquid fuels
The House of Representatives will soon vote on two important pieces of legislation. We need members and supporters from our industry to help ensure Congress passes these bills. 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. 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.
Using the tools to the right (or below if you’re on your phone), you can customize a note to Congressional leaders and your representative in Congress urging them to support these bills. As always, be respectful and make a point to stress what’s at stake if Congress doesn’t act and EPA moves forward with its efforts to phase out traditional cars and trucks and the liquid fuels they run on.
