In June 2015, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration rolled out a proposal to revise current fuel standards for medium- and -heavy duty vehicles in an effort to improve fuel efficiency and combat climate change by reducing carbon pollution. While the federal government has estimated substantial reductions in "greenhouse gas" emissions as well as reductions in fuel cost and oil consumption, reaction to the draft proposal has been varied.
This session by expert speaker, Erik R. Janus, will review the current federal government proposal, review the history of the fuel transportation standard adjustment in the face of climate change, examine the impacts of the current proposal on the US transportation sector and provide you with a greater understanding of how employers can interact and influence the federal legislative process.
