Rep. James Issues Statement Following Biden Administration Regulations on Tailpipe Emissions

Washington, D.C., March 20, 2024 | Noah Sadlier (202-225-4961)

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Representative John James (MI-10) released the following statement after the Biden Administration announced its plan to gut the American automotive industry with its new tailpipe emissions standards.

Rep. James said:

“I know the automotive industry intimately, having run an automotive supply chain company for years. Today's news from the Biden Administration's EPA will do more harm to the automotive industry, Michigan's middle-class, and the entire nation's economy than many realize. This EPA rule is a de-facto mandate against gas-powered cars, and will boost China's middle-class on the backs of our own middle-class in Michigan.”

Given Rep. James' expert understanding and background in the automotive industry, he plans to lead a Congressional Review Act (CRA) on this new EPA rule in the near future.
