President Donald Trump went to the heart of the United States auto industry on Wednesday to announce an executive order requiring the Environmental Protection Agency to reopen a review of fuel-economy and emissions standards that had been concluded previous year in the waning days of the Obama Administration.
President Donald Trump tweeted about "fake news" following a report about his taxes, spoke in Detroit after meeting automobile executives and headed to Nashville for a "Make America Great Again" rally.
"We are going to ensure that any regulations we have protect and defend your jobs, your factories". Now, competition comes not only from foreign automakers who specialize in more fuel-efficient cars, but tech companies whose products in the not-distant future will displace the internal combustion engine - and likely the Big Three automakers, as well, if they are able to roll back the fuel efficiency standards.
President Trump is expected to talk about jobs-specifically automotive jobs-when he visits the American Center for Mobility at Willow Run in Ypsilanti Township.
Trump met with auto executives outside Detroit on Wednesday, in a confab that will include top American executives of top Japanese, German, and Korean auto company executives. Here, vehicles refuel at a roadside gas station in New Mexico.
The Obama administration pushed to increase fuel efficiency rapidly over the next several years to improve U.S. energy security and save consumers money at the pump. The review will offer a forum for parties involved to reach fresh consensus on the standards, she said in an interview.
Growth in the fleet size and vehicle miles traveled per vehicle remain important drivers, PIRA said. GM's hiring decision, too, has more to do with the company's long-term strategy than any presidential pressure or imminent policy changes.
The reopening of the midterm review does not mean the standards will be weakened, but it does give automakers the opportunity to push for relief by lobbying new EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, who has downplayed the effect humans have on climate.
As expected, the Trump administration said today it would re-open review of tough federal mpg and emissions standards that had been finalized under the Obama EPA. The government committed to a midterm review in 2012 when it and automakers agreed to very challenging fuel-economy standards through 2025. The official said the administration wanted to put the review "back on track" and that no decision had been made to loosen the standards.
Evidently, that includes Obama-era fuel-efficiency standards, which in Trump's mind, represents an "assault".
Automakers have argued that adoption of hybrid and plug-in electric vehicles is not keeping pace with the CAFE standards, due in large part to the prolonged period of low gasoline prices. "So that's a big problem". But seven days before Obama left office, the EPA made a decision to keep the stringent requirements it had set in place for model years 2022 to 2025.
The White House official said the administration is not now contemplating a challenge to California's authority to set its own vehicle emissions standards or electric-car sales mandates. The new rules "threaten to depress an industry that can ill afford spiraling regulatory costs", Mitch Bainwol, chief executive of the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, wrote in a February 27 letter to Pruitt. Trump could ask the EPA come out with a new set by April 2018 or later.
"We're going to do some wonderful work with you, but you're going to have to help us with jobs", Trump told the CEOs during a roundtable meeting.
The criteria in the discussion are EPA-mandated Corporate Average Fuel Economy rules, which have been described as "not economically feasible" by their critics.
