Tell the EPA to Approve State's Cleaner Car Standards

imageLogo

Transportation is the largest source of climate pollution across the United States. Transitioning to cleaner, zero emission vehicles is one of the best ways to tackle this problem.

California, Washington D.C., and 12 other states (OR, WA, CO, NM, RI, MA, VT, NY, NJ, DE, MD, VA) have adopted the Advanced Clean Cars II (ACC II) standards, which will help reduce emissions from the transportation sector. These standards will also help avoid the worst impacts of climate change, protect vulnerable communities, and address poor air quality.

However, under the Clean Air Act, California must apply for a waiver with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to implement their clean vehicle programs that are more stringent than the federal government's standards. California, Washington D.C., and the 12 other states —which represent over 30% of the new vehicle market—will need this waiver in order to actually enforce the regulations they have already adopted.

Submit your comment now and tell the EPA they must approve California's ACC II waiver now to allow states to accelerate the transition to cleaner vehicles and safeguard public health.


SUBJECT: Approve California's ACC II Waiver

Dear Administrator Regan,

I urge you to grant California's Air Resources Board request for a waiver of preemption under Section 209(b) of the Clean Air Act for the Advanced Clean Cars II Regulation.

The transportation sector is the largest source of nitrogen oxide pollution, as well as the leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions across the United States. These emissions not only harm our air quality but also human health and climate.

ACC II is a key regulation that allows states to further reduce harmful emissions from gasoline and diesel cars and light trucks on the road. It also allows states to increase the number of clean, electric vehicles placed for sale, giving drivers more options when it comes to the cars they drive.

Granting California's ACC II waiver is a win for air quality, health, drivers, and the climate.
