Dingell Statement on Fuel Economy Litigation

Washington, May 22, 2020

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-MI) issued the following statement after the Auto Innovators announced their intervention in federal litigation regarding fuel economy standards:

“I was disappointed by the announcement today. I have argued it’s in the long-term interest for the administration, California and the auto industry to be on the same page. We must continue to be at the forefront of innovation and technology. Today’s action sets us further back from this goal. The parties that made the move today are the same ones that joined the Trump Administration’s lawsuit against California. The fact of the matter is the global auto market is already significantly decarbonizing. The American auto industry can either lead or be led.”
