The BlueGreen Alliance released a statement from Director of Vehicles and Advanced Transportation Zoe Lipman.

“This is just stupid. In case after case, we’ve seen this administration move to roll back rules that working people and communities depend on. By undermining clean car standards, this latest move by the Trump administration will sacrifice American manufacturing, jobs, and competitiveness at a time when the world is rushing to win the race to build the next generation of vehicles.”
