Today, the Trump administration took its first step toward rolling back the EPA’s Clean Power Plan by announcing a move to replace this critical program that cuts power plant pollution. Environment America released the following statement in response:
Happy 5th birthday, Clean Car Standards! People across the United States are celebrating less air pollution and more oil staying in the ground as the Clean Car Standards turn 5 years old this week. These standards aren’t just good for the environment, they’re good for the economy as well: Michigan has saved 1.1 billion dollars since automakers, federal and state governments and other stakeholders agreed upon the rules on October 15, 2012.
