EPN Presents Testimony on EPA’s Proposed GHG Emissions Standards for Light-Duty Vehicles

On August 25, 2021, EPN presented testimony at a virtual public hearing on EPA’s proposal to revise the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions standards for light-duty vehicles for 2023 and later model years to make the standards more stringent. EPN noted that zero-emissions vehicles offer large, nationwide public health benefits to everyone, but especially to vulnerable communities most at risk from climate-related extreme weather events, as well as to high pollution levels from urban freeways and oil refineries. EPN urged the agency to prioritize a post-2026 rule that establishes a clear regulatory pathway to achieve near-100-percent zero-emissions car and light truck sales by 2035.
