Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Supports Revised CAFE Standards


Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund (TPPCF) Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement addressing the release of revised CAFE standards by the DOT and the EPA.

“Car buyers and the free market should be the determining factor in what types of cars are available on the market, not government bureaucrats. For too long, bureaucrats in Washington and California have used Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) regulations to dictate to automakers what cars to make, limiting consumer options, raising prices, and putting car ownership, especially new car ownership, out of reach for many Americans. This decision by the Department of Transportation and the Environmental Protection Agency to reform former President Obama’s CAFE regulations takes the decision-making power away from the bureaucrats and puts it back in the hands of the American consumer where it belongs.”
