Auto Dealers Say Fight Over Emissions ‘Just Beginning’

nada2.jpgThe fight over fuel economy and vehicle tailpipe emissions is just beginning and America’s car and truck dealers are at the center of it, according to the National Automobile Dealers Association.

“This is no time for us to relax,” says incoming Chairman Annette Sykora at the 2008 NADA Convention & Exposition in San Francisco today. “In fact, it is because dealers were actively engaged in the CAFE debate that the industry can live to fight another day.”

At the convention, General Motors chairman and CEO Rick Wagoner called on auto dealers (you can see his keynote here) to help the industry prevent states from forming their own auto emission rules, saying that the better course is one tough national standard, Dow Jones reports.

NADA says it supports the CAFE increase of vehicles to achieve 35 mpg by 2020, which is a 40 percent increase in fuel economy over today’s standards. NADA opposes any effort to overturn the EPA’s decision.
