Senate to Consider New Fuel Efficiency Standards Bill in June

May 14, 2007

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Next month the Senate will consider legislation that seeks to raise fuel efficiency standards to an average of 35 miles per gallon by 2020. Last week, the measure cleared the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee. If approved, the bill would raise the national fleet fuel-economy average by about 40 percent, according to the Associated Press. The Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, which includes the Detroit automakers and Toyota, oppose the legislation.
