CARB cautions car companies about Auto Alliance statements 

Mary Nichols asks them to disavow incorrect claims 

SACRAMENTO - Today, Chairman Mary D. Nichols released a letter
sent to seven major automobile manufacturers challenging them to
disavow claims made by the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers
to Representatives Upton and Issa or risk returning to the
environmental battles of the Bush era.

Nichols expressed concern that misrepresentation of ongoing
negotiations jeopardizes progress with the federal agencies to
develop and implement vehicle emission standards that reduce
greenhouse gas emissions in California and nationwide while
saving consumers money at the pump. 

Nichols also corrected several long-debunked claims made by the
Alliance, and ended the letter by requesting that the CEOs take
action to prevent the constructive relationship between the
regulators and the companies from being undermined.

The full text of the letter is available at:
