California Air Resources Board (CARB) Chairman Available for

Society of Automotive Engineers conference.

The subject of the panel on Monday morning is: “The New Reality
- CAFE and CO2 Reduction - What Does the Future Hold?” Ms.
Nichols will be making the case that California’s clean car laws
(the Pavley regulations) are more effective at reducing

their strategy of opposition and allow California and 13 other
states to enforce and establish more stringent greenhouse gas
emission standards for cars than the existing federal standards.

• Red Cavaney, President and CEO, American Petroleum Institute

• Margo Oge, Director, Office of Transportation and Air Quality,
