Americans should be free to choose the car that is best for them.

American Energy Alliance’s Statement on the Choice in Automobile Retail Sales “CARS” Act (H.R. 4468)

Americans should be free to choose the car that is best for them.

WASHINGTON DC – Today, the House passed H.R. 4468, the Choice in Automobile Retail Sales Act, by a vote of 221-197. This bill, introduced by Rep. Tim Walberg (R-MI), prevents the EPA from finalizing its proposed rule on federal vehicle emissions standards, which would require 70 percent of cars and trucks to be electric in less than 10 years.

AEA President Thomas Pyle, and founding member of the Save Our Cars Coalition, issued the following statement after House passage of the bill:

Bipartisan passage of this bill is welcome recognition that Americans should continue to be free to choose the car or truck that best suits their budget and lifestyle.

The proposal to essentially ban internal combustion engines ignores the realities of the vehicle sales market and shows just how out of touch the Biden administration is when it comes to the types of cars and trucks Americans prefer.

Using the regulatory process to pick winners and losers in Washington is an abuse of the law and will do little more than raise costs and reduce our choice in vehicles. This legislation signals that Congress is reasserting its authority over the ideologies of unelected bureaucrats and putting the needs of their constituents first.”
