He's at it again

The Trump administration is trying to rollback California's vehicle emissions standards — which have become legislative best practice, adopted by 13 states (including Massachusetts) and Washington, D.C.

The success of these standards has resulted in more fuel-efficient vehicles with lower carbon emissions nationwide. I've cosponsored a petition demanding Trump stops attacking our auto emissions standards, and I encourage you to sign it, too.

Tell Donald Trump to stop attacking auto emission standards. Sign the petition.

Rolling back vehicle emission standards will cause a serious increase in carbon emissions in our atmosphere, which will:

  • Accelerate the climate crisis;
  • Increase the risk of chronic illness, such as cardiovascular disease and mental health disorders among vulnerable populations, primarily young kids and communities of color;
  • Introduce more pollutants and carcinogens to the air we breathe;
  • Undermine the fuel economy standard, costing consumers billions of dollars.

More soon,
