 “Increasing the sales of new cars that eliminate climate and health-harming pollution from their tailpipes can boost good-paying union jobs, save consumers thousands of dollars, improve public health, and save lives. EDF is excited to see proposals like Rep. Kildee’s that will help us get closer to our climate goals while stimulating the economy.”
