Bluegreen Alliance Submits Written Comments on Proposed Rollback of Clean Vehicle Standards

On October 26, 2018, the BlueGreen Alliance submitted written comments on a proposed rollback of the nation's vehicle fuel economy and greenhouse gas emissions standards by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Over the last decade—and while meeting our current strong standards—the U.S. has seen a transformation in the automotive sector, returning to profitability and record sales, and bringing back jobs building innovative vehicles, parts, and materials all across the country. The BlueGreen alliance has found that there  are currently at least 288,000 workers in 1,200 factories and engineering facilities in 48 states employed building the parts and materials that make today’s vehicles more fuel efficient.

Additionally, under the standards, automakers have invested $76 billion in American plants and facilities. While some of that $76 billion represents business-as-usual investment, a significant portion is new, added, or enhanced investment in the innovative technology and manufacturing processes to meet the nation’s commonsense fuel economy and greenhouse gas standards.
