Car Dealers Battle Their Own Companies on New Auto Pollution Rules

by Downwinders on November 2, 2011

All the major automobile manufacturing companies signed-on to the Obama Administration’s July proposal to increase fleet efficiency standards to 54 mpg by 2025. That left the usual opponents of these increases in league with the proponents. Everything seemed hunky-dory. But wait. Automobile Dealers are now organizing to stop this move. How? By stripping the EPA and the State of California from being able to set mpg standards. And of course the little matter of state’s rights won’t get in the way of House Republicans carrying water for the Auto Dealers and undermining California’s ability to set its own emission standards. Cash donations trump ideology every time.
