Dear Administration Pruitt,

We, the undersigned, oppose your effort to revoke California's ability to set fuel economy standards to improve gasoline mileage and reduce greenhouse gases from cars and SUVs.  Such a change would likely worsen Southern California’s worst-in-the-nation air pollution. 

This proposal is ill-advised, could set back decades of progress that has made our region healthier, and would be counter-productive because it will be ignored by vehicle manufacturers as car owners and users demand cleaner and more fuel-efficient vehicles.

California has led the way on creating the market for cleaner cars and trucks with programs like Carl Moyer, which fund clean truck technology, and the State’s car rebate programs. And in Los Angeles, we are working to reduce both greenhouse gases and air pollution from cars and trucks by investing in public transit, equitable housing near transit, and pedestrian and bicycle access.

Don't set us back by rolling back fuel economy standards to a dirtier past. We need to be increasing fuel economy and be doing it faster. Transportation is America’s biggest source of greenhouse gases that are causing global warming and toxic pollutants from trucks and other vehicles that sicken people throughout the region.

The sooner we can accelerate the deployment of zero and near-zero cars and trucks, the sooner we can clean our air and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Southern California. Please reconsider your position to revoke California's ability to set fuel economy standards.

Yours truly,
