24 Governors representing more than half the car market commit to continue working together to support a strong national standard and states’ rights.
Members of the bipartisan United States Climate Alliance today issued the following statement announcing an effort to work together to support a strong national standard through the “Nation’s Clean Car Promise”:
“We, the undersigned 24 governors– a bipartisan coalition representing 52 percent of the U.S. population and 57 percent of the economy – stand together in calling for one strong, national clean car standard and support preserving state authority to protect our residents from vehicle pollution. Strong vehicle standards protect our communities from unnecessary air pollution and fuel costs, and they address the largest source of carbon pollution in the United States.
We commit to continue working together to support a strong national standard and issue the “Nation’s Clean Car Promise.”
