Republicans to force floor vote reversing California’s electric vehicle mandate

In addition, energy industry groups have supported the bill, arguing EV mandates would harm American consumers.

“Every American should be able to choose the type of car or truck they want to drive,” American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers President and CEO Chet Thompson said in March, endorsing Joyce’s bill.

“Restricting consumer choice by eliminating competition and banning entire vehicle power trains is the wrong path to achieving cleaner transportation or supporting U.S. energy security; in fact, it could undercut both,” Thompson continued. “Liquid fuels are an irreplaceable part of meeting future energy demand and will play an important role in reducing the carbon intensity of transportation.”
