CRE Launches FuelEconomyIn.US:
Recommends NHTSA Defer New CAFE Standards Until Long Term Strategy Plan Completed
The Center for Regulatory Effectiveness recommended that NHTSA defer the short-term action of establishing new CAFE standards for light trucks until the agency develops a long term strategy. CRE recommended that the agency's CAFE strategy should be based on the thirteen elements contained in the Levin-Bond amendment, passed by the Senate, which delineated policy issues which must be addressed when establishing CAFE standards. One of the directives included in the Levin-Bond amendment was a requirement that the agency address the structural flaws identified by the National Research Council in their comprehensive study of the CAFE program. CRE created FuelEconomyIn.US to provide NHTSA and other federal agencies with a wide range of stakeholder views on the key issues raised in the Levin-Bond amendment and National Research Council study. FuelEconomyIn.US has established an Interactive Public Docket to provide a mechanism for collecting and disseminating stakeholder comments. To this end, CRE encourages all stakeholders to provide FuelEconomyIn.US with their views on CAFE.
