Tennesseans for Clean Air, Water, Land & Energy
Senator Corker and Alexander: Oppose the Attack on Fuel Efficiency Standards that reduce pollution, protect health, and cut our dependency on foreign oil.
Dear Senator Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander:
Thank you for your previous support of fuel efficiency standards. They've proven to be a common sense policy that’s working for Tennesseans, saving us money at the gas pump, cutting our dependency on big foreign oil, keeping us competitive in the economy, and reducing harmful air pollution.
President Trump is trying to roll back these Clean Car Standards, which if left in place, would nearly double the fuel efficiency of cars and drastically reduce harmful tailpipe pollution. Currently, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is collecting comments on this dangerous roll back proposal.
Senators Corker and Alexander, will you speak up on behalf of Tennesseans and clean air? Please let the EPA and this Administration know that you oppose President Trump's assault on Clean Car Standards. As your constituent, could you please forward this letter, and the letters of thousands of other Tennesseans, to the EPA?
By even considering a roll back to the Clean Car Standards, the EPA is failing to fulfill its missions to protect our precious resources, defend clean air, and reduce America's dependence on dirty fossil fuels.
Please stand by your early votes and oppose attempts to undermine fuel efficiency standards that protect health, cut pollution, and keep America as a competitive growing economy.
