Trump Administration Officially Rolls Back Obama’s Fuel Efficiency Rules
The Washington Times cites General Counsel Sam Kazman on CAFE standards:
The Competitive Enterprise Institute, a free-market think tank that has pushed for a relaxation of the Obama-era mandates, praised the Trump administration’s move but said it should have done more.
“The rollback is a welcome step in slowing down CAFE’s progressively worse restrictions on consumer choice in car buying,” said CEI General Counsel Sam Kazman. “But in our view, the agencies should have gone even further; rather than just slowing down the CAFE increases, they should have either frozen or even rolled back the standards. That would have been even better for consumers and for the country.”
