Statement by American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) president and chief executive officer Chet Thompson following President Donald Trump’s visit to Michigan where he announced the administration would reopen the current evaluation of auto efficiency standards for model years 2022 to 2025 light duty vehicles.
“AFPM is encouraged by President Trump’s announcement that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will reopen its midterm review of model years 2022 to 2025 greenhouse gas standards for light duty vehicles.
“In rushing the midterm final determination out the door more than a year early, the Obama Administration short circuited significant technical, economic, and policy analyses, and the full public debate that this issue warrants. Today’s decision will allow EPA, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, California and other stakeholders to work together to make a transparent decision grounded in factual analyses rather than ideology.”
