Dec 20, 2021
Press Release

Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) released the following statement today after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized its clean cars rule updating tailpipe emissions standards:  

“Today’s action is a tremendous step in the right direction in our fight against the climate crisis. EPA’s final rule will reduce even more climate pollution than its proposed rule, saving Americans’ money at the pump and spurring investments in building clean cars here at home. Paired with the investments in the bipartisan infrastructure law, this action will accelerate the process of transforming our transportation sector to the benefit of public health and the environment.  

“I applaud the Biden EPA for meaningfully addressing the climate crisis once again, and I look forward to continuing to work with the administration to swiftly and ambitiously tackle climate pollution from the rest of the transportation sector.”
