PROVIDENCE, RI - Governor Raimondo issued the following statement today on the Environmental Protection Agency's proposal to weaken national clean car standards:
"Weakening the nation's clean car standards will not only cost Americans more at the pump. It will also hurt children and senior citizens and will hinder Rhode Island's ability to meet our own emission reduction targets. Rhode Island has been a leader in addressing climate change and we have no intention of retreating. We will use every tool available to fight the Trump administration's shortsighted changes and continue our momentum toward protecting public health, advancing our green economy, and becoming a more energy efficient and resilient state."
