Assemblywoman Catharine B. Baker (R-San Ramon) and Assemblywoman Autumn Burke (D-Inglewood) introduced bi-partisan legislation (AJR 49) calling on the federal government to maintain California’s ability to set its own vehicle efficiency and emissions standards.

“The federal government’s proposal is a threat to the air we breathe and the climate we live in,” said Baker. “The science is clear: California’s fuel efficiency standards work and are needed. I am pleased to see leaders from both sides of the aisle put partisanship aside and stand up for our environment. California’s standards have dramatically improved our air quality and vehicle efficiency, while our economy has grown to the fifth-largest in the world. Any action that jeopardizes that progress is misguided and must be opposed.”
