300+ Nurses in 50 States & DC Call on the Biden Administration to Move Forward with Long-Term Cleaner Car Standards in 2022
The Biden Administration has promised to advance bold action around emissions and efficiency standards for passenger cars and trucks. On August 5, 2021, President Biden also signed an Executive Order with a goal for 50% of cars and light truck sales in 2030 to be zero-emission electric vehicles, and also laid out timelines for vehicle rules. As we hit the one-year anniversary, it’s important to call for continued action through the next round of strong clean car standards.
Nurses are seeing the impact the pollution from the transportation sector has on public health. In a letter to the Biden Administration and US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Administrator Michael Regan, over 300 nurses from all 50 states and DC are calling on EPA to move forward with the next round of clean car standards for Model Year 2027 and beyond.ANHE Clean Cars Petition w: Signers
