Schumer Statement on EPA’s Decision to Roll Back Fuel Economy Standards

April 2, 2018
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding the EPA’s decision to roll back fuel economy standards.
“EPA Administrator Pruitt’s decision to begin rolling back fuel economy standards is a victory for big oil and major corporations at the expense of American consumers and clean air for our kids. As usual, the administration sides with big, powerful special interests over the interests of average American families, who will pay the price for lower miles per gallon and dirtier air.”
