Senator Mullin wants halt to EPA tailpipe rule—says he’s committed to fighting it



Oklahoma U.S. Sen. Markwayne Mullin isn’t giving up on his fight against a proposed new EPA tailpipe rule.

Last week he joined other Senators and Representatives in urging the President and Shalanda Young, Director of the Office of Management and Budget to halt the rule. Republicans contend it’s a green energy effort to push American drivers to electric vehicles and making it more and more difficult to own a gas-engine car or truck.

Sen. Mullin said the rule is not only burdensome but inconsistent with the automotive industry.

“This is just another play in the Democrats’ Green New Deal agenda to degrade liquid fuels and combustion engines, despite the economic harm this will bring to American businesses and families,” wrote Sen. Mullin in a recent message to his constituents.

“As your Senator, I’m committed to striking down electric vehicle mandates and preserving consumer choice in the automotive industry.”
