Statement from NYS DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos on U.S. EPA Weakening Fuel Economy Standards

Today's EPA rollback will result in more air pollution in New York's communities, more respiratory illnesses, and more New Yorkers dying because of increased air pollution. New York State will continue to fight EPA in court and work to implement the stringent California standards allowed by the federal Clean Air Act. The COVID-19 public health crisis makes it clear that policy must follow sound science.

From @BasilSeggos on Twitter: The #COVID19 pandemic has dramatically shredded the premise that government can ignore science. #ClimateChange is an irrefutable scientific fact. This @EPA decision is unforgivable and threatens our future. New York will fight this.
