No Loopholes: Support Strong Fuel Efficiency Standards

    1. Sponsored by

      LCV Education Fund

Recently, the Obama administration, lead by the Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Transportation, proposed increasing national fuel efficiency standards to 54.5 miles per gallon by the year 2025. These landmark fuel efficiency standards and global warming pollution standards represent an important step in growing our economy and protecting our environment.

When fully implemented, these historic fuel efficiency standards will:

   · Save American families $1.2 trillion at the pump

   · Reduce annual global warming pollution by 280 million metric tons

   · Cut our oil consumption by 2.2 million barrels per day

   · Help create nearly 500,000 Americans jobs


But Big Polluters and their congressional allies are pressuring the administration to carve out special loopholes that weaken the standards. They want to protect polluter profits, despite the fact that consumers across the country are increasingly struggling with the rising cost of gas. That’s why we need you to speak out in support of these important new standards.

Tell the Obama administration that you support the proposed new fuel efficiency and global warming pollution standards.
