Dingell Statement on Fuel Economy Agreement

Washington, July 25, 2019

WASHINGTON, DC - Today, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-MI) issued the following statement after Ford, Volkswagen, Honda, and BMW came to an agreement with the State of California on a framework for fuel economy standards:

“This is a positive development. The auto industry needs certainty. This industry is more fragile than many realize. If the United States is to be competitive, we have to stay at the forefront of innovation and technology, which will help us transition to the next generation of more fuel-efficient vehicles. 

“I’ve been a consistent voice for collaboration. This agreement is a step forward in that direction.

“I would urge this framework to be a catalyst for all stakeholders to go back to the table. It would be win-win for everyone.”
