The Campaign’s diverse members believe that bringing the next generation of advanced, clean cars into the driveways of California families will save consumers money, reduce air pollution, and support new jobs and investment in the state’s clean energy economy.The Campaign is presently urging the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to negotiate new carbon pollution and federal mileage standards with the Federal government that are tough enough to continue propelling the clean economy forward, that will prevent pollution and will protect public health.
