ARLINGTON, VA., December 20, 2007— Statement by Michael Stanton, President and CEO of the Association of International Automobile Manufacturers (AIAM), on EPA’s California Waiver Decision.

“We are very pleased with the EPA’s decision to deny California’s waiver application. AIAM supports efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improve fuel economy but believes strongly that it is the federal government’s responsibility to establish one uniform national fuel economy standard rather than permit a patchwork of state laws. We look forward to working with EPA and other federal agencies to develop nationwide GHG emissions regulations for motor vehicles that will more effectively address global warming and climate change concerns related to CO2 emissions from automobiles.”
