STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on President Trump's plan to roll back fuel economy standards

"Climate change is the single greatest threat to humanity’s future. Reducing emissions through federal fuel economy standards is key to making America more competitive, and to meeting our commitments under the Paris Climate Agreement. That's why I'm adding a record number of electric vehicles to our fleet in Los Angeles, and working with 'Climate Mayors' across the nation to create more demand for EVs that will help cut cities' operating costs and lower emissions. Clean vehicles are foundational to our health and prosperity, vital to protecting our residents from the harmful impacts of climate change, and critical to creating the 21st century economy." — Mayor Eric Garcetti
