Budd Helps Introduce Bipartisan Bill to Overturn Biden EV Mandates

Washington, D.C. — Today, Senator Ted Budd (R-NC) helped introduce a bipartisan Congressional Review Act legislation to block the Biden administration’s electric vehicle mandates.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently finalized new emissions regulations which would require up to two-thirds of new cars and nearly 40% of trucks sold in the U.S. to be electric vehicles (EVs) in eight years.

The bill is led by Senators Pete Ricketts (R-NE) and Dan Sullivan (R-AK) and Congressmen John James (R-MI) and Russ Fulcher (R-ID).

Senator Budd said in a statement:

“President Biden’s new EV mandate continues this administration’s war on American consumers and American energy. This new rule will cause costs to rise, choice to decline, and national security to be threatened. I’m proud to join Senators Ricketts and Sullivan to overturn this disastrous mandate.”

Senator Ricketts said:

“President Biden’s EV mandate is delusional. This rule will make it harder for low-income families to buy a car or rural families to get to their jobs. I promised Nebraskans I’d use every tool I have to fight this. Our bipartisan legislation will keep costs down, defend consumer choice, and protect us against becoming more dependent on the CCP.”

Senator Sullivan said:

“These regulations are not only disastrous for our economy, but Alaskans know well that EV technology just doesn’t work in rural states—especially those with extreme cold temperatures and communities separated by thousands of miles where reliable transportation is a matter of life and death. Make no mistake, this thinly-disguised attempt to get rid of the internal-combustion engine without congressional authority will only hurt hard-working families across the country, worsen the supply chain crisis, and deepen our reliance on Chinese Communist Party-controlled critical minerals. We’re urging every one of our colleagues to put the interests of American families above the demands of the radical environmentalists, and support our CRA resolutions overturning these ludicrous rules to ensure Americans and Alaskans continue to have access to the vehicles of their choice that actually work.”
