Business Alliance Response to Announcement on Vehicle Standards

Statement from Susan Frank, Coordinator, California Business Alliance for a Green Economy, in response to today’s announcement by President Obama on fuel economy and emissions standards for light, medium and heavy duty vehicles:

“Today’s announcement at the White House is more evidence that Californians can have a strong economy and a clean environment at the same time by pursuing policies that promote energy efficiency, encourage the development of the clean tech sector of our economy, and reduce pollution. A study released this week by CALSTART, an organization dedicated to the clean transportation technology industry, and the Union of Concerned Scientists found that increasing truck mileage just 3.7 MPG will save thousands of dollars for industry and create 4,000 California jobs.”
