WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) issued the following statement after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released its finalized rule for light-duty and medium-duty vehicle emission standards.

“The Biden administration’s revised standard responds to a slowdown in sales as Americans realize not just the cost and unreliability of electric vehicles, but also the dirty truth behind this supposedly ‘clean’ technology. Continuing to force EVs on automakers and the public will only exacerbate their serious environmental, safety, and human rights concerns. Instead of delaying these standards, President Biden should abandon this attempt to appease climate activists and allow the market to take its course. More practical, market-driven changes—like allowing the year-round sale of E15 ethanol—would help achieve environmental goals for America’s vehicle fleet,” said Senator Fischer.

Ahead of today’s announcement, Senator Fischer 
delivered a speech on the Senate floor yesterday debunking the Electric Vehicle myths pushed by the Biden administration and climate activists.
