The Obama administration should take a “balanced and thoughtful approach” to raising fuel economy standards by considering the action's economic impact, says a June 29 letter from fifteen governors. The letter was signed by the governors of Alabama, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Nevada, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, and Virginia and sent to Department of Transportation and the Environmental Protection Agency. The governors urged these two agencies to consider the affect on consumers and businesses in their state of higher corporate average fuel economy standards for model year 2017 through 2025 cars and light trucks.
