Comments of the Consumer Federation of America on the California Air Resources Board Mid-Term Review

Consumer Federation of America submitted comments to the California Air Resources Board’s (CAB) Mid-term Review. The Environment Protection Agency’s Technology Analysis Report and Final Determination combined with the CAB’s Mid-term Review, placed atop the massive original analyses in the National Program, constitute one of the most thorough examinations of automotive technology and market conditions ever conducted in a regulatory proceeding in the United States. Both these mid-term reviews arrive at the same conclusion, the current standards for 2022-2025 are technically feasible and economically beneficial. The standards will result in significant reductions in emissions of pollutants, including greenhouse gases and huge consumer savings. CFA fully supports their conclusion.
