New House Leadership, Same Mileage Standards
John Dingell, a Representative from Michigan, will, come January, be the Chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. His district is home to all three of America’s top car manufacturers, and, for some reason, he’s not in favor of increasing mileage standards. Some members of Congress have been walking the Treehugger line, saying that efficiency of American vehicles could easily double in every class. The benefits for the environment would be incalculable, they say, and the burden on industry would be negligible. But with Detroit’s Representative charing the House Energy Committee, those changes are extremely unlikely.
