Dear Mr. Wysor: Thank you for the opportunity to provide comment on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposed rule, “Revised 2023 and Later Model Year Light-Duty Vehicle Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standards.” The U.S. Chamber of Commerce (“the Chamber”) submits the following recommendations for your consideration as the agency considers more ambitious standards.
- Bolster U.S. supply chains for strategic minerals to ensure affordability and implementation feasibility
- Pursue permitting reforms across the federal government to speed up investment in needed infrastructure
- Advance government research and development to support and accelerate vehicle technology innovation
- Durable, harmonized standards that prioritize regulatory certainty and technical achievability are needed to accelerate progress on emissions reductions while providing stability for long-term business planning and investment
