Vehicle Rule Will Spur Innovation, Create Jobs, Accelerate Emissions Reductions

WASHINGTON, D.C.  – The Environmental Protection Agency’s proposal to lower vehicle emissions and speed the essential transition to electric vehicles will not only reduce hazardous air pollution, but also help address the transportation sector’s role in the climate crisis. 

“We cannot get to net-zero emissions and confront the climate crisis without dramatically reducing the transportation sector’s carbon pollution,” said Shannon Heyck-Williams, associate vice president of climate and energy at the National Wildlife Federation. “The EPA’s proposed rule is an essential part of the Biden Administration’s constellation of legislative and regulatory reforms that will create jobs, reduce emissions, slash localized air pollution, and supercharge our clean energy economy. These new regulations will help our country transition to safer, more efficient forms of transportation and help maintain our global leadership in auto manufacturing.”
