202.682.8114 |

WASHINGTON, April 18, 2024 – The American Petroleum Institute (API) today released the following statement from Executive Vice President and Chief Advocacy Officer Amanda Eversole on Senate Bill S.4072 prohibiting the use of funds to implement, administer or enforce EPA’s unrealistic tailpipe emissions standards:

“We are encouraged by the bipartisan support for protecting consumer choice and overturning restrictive mandates. Make no mistake, EPA’s rule is a de facto ban on new gasoline and diesel cars and trucks. While we are disappointed that the Senate failed to pass this bill, we are continuing to work with Congress to stand up against this rule and preserve Americans’ freedom to choose the vehicles they can buy and drive.” 

API represents all segments of America’s natural gas and oil industry, which supports nearly 11 million U.S. jobs and is backed by a growing grassroots movement of millions of Americans.
