NCGA, 色控传媒F and Coalition Partners File Lawsuit to Protect American Consumers from EPA鈥檚 Electric Vehicle Mandate

罢丑别听, American Farm Bureau Federation and six auto dealers representing 16 brands and collectively operating dozens of dealerships in major markets across the country joined the American Petroleum Institute today in filing a聽聽in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals challenging the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency鈥檚 light-duty and medium-duty vehicle emissions standards for model years 2027-2032.

The groups said EPA exceeded its congressional authority with the regulation and rendered a decision that values one tool for fighting climate change over others.

鈥淏y approving tailpipe standards that focus exclusively on electric vehicles, EPA has ignored the proven benefits corn ethanol offers in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and combatting climate change,鈥 Minnesota farmer and National Corn Growers Association President Harold Wolle said. 鈥淲hile it could take decades to get enough electric vehicles on the road to significantly lower GHG emissions, ethanol is a critical and effective climate solution that is available now. We have tried to make this case to EPA to no avail, and now we will make our case in court.鈥

The groups also noted that EPA鈥檚 standard will hurt America鈥檚 farmers.

鈥淔armers answered the call to help America be more sustainable by growing the crops necessary for renewable fuels. Now, the rug is being pulled out from underneath them with unrealistic emissions goals that put years of investment at risk,鈥 American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall said. 鈥淚mpractical standards for light-duty and medium-duty trucks will drive up the cost of farm vehicles and force farmers to rely on a charging network that does not yet exist in rural areas.鈥

Leaders at API emphasized the impact the agency鈥檚 standards would have on American consumers.

鈥淭oday, we are taking action to protect American consumers, U.S. manufacturing workers and our nation鈥檚 hard-won energy security from this intrusive government mandate,鈥 API Senior Vice President and General Counsel Ryan Meyers said. 鈥淓PA has exceeded its congressional authority with this regulation that will eliminate most new gas cars and traditional hybrids from the U.S. market in less than a decade. We look forward to making our case in court.鈥

In March, the Biden administration finalized new federal vehicle emissions standards for light- and medium-duty vehicles that require 68% of new passenger vehicles and 43% of new medium-duty trucks and vans to be electric by 2032.
