Statement by John Bozzella, President and CEO, Global Automakers

“The Environmental Protection Agency has still failed to state a compelling reason for rushing its final determination.  It unnecessarily truncated public comment and prevented scrutiny of an important policy decision that will affect consumers, investment, public health and the environment.   This can only undermine confidence in the objectivity of policymaking.  It merits a serious look by the incoming administration.”


The Association of Global Automakers represents international motor vehicle manufacturers, original equipment suppliers, and other automotive-related trade associations. We work with industry leaders, legislators, and regulators to create the kind of public policy that improves vehicle safety, encourages technological innovation, and protects our planet. Our goal is to foster a competitive environment in which more vehicles are designed and built to enhance Americans’ quality of life. For more information, visit
