Statement from John Bozzella, President and CEO of Global Automakers

"We continue to believe there is a middle ground solution that supports the goals of the Administration, state of California, as well as automakers. This middle ground would ensure innovation and investment in the U.S. auto industry, provide year-over-year efficiency improvements and account for the needs of American consumers. Global Automakers is disappointed and concerned that the failure of federal and state regulators to reach an agreement on a national program will not benefit either our economic nor environmental objectives.”
