What works in California doesn't work for Colorado
Attend a talking points breakfast, then a Colorado Air Quality Control Commission meeting to stop Colorado from adopting California's vehicle emissions standards.
7:15 a.m. Thursday
February 15, 2018
Last year, new car dealers' physical presence at the seven-part franchise bill's Business Affairs & Labor Committee hearing was key to its passage.Now, your physical presence is needed to stop Colorado from adopting California's vehicle emissions standards!
The Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment is hearing a discussion to consider adopting California low-emission vehicle standards (Cal-LEV). This is a misguided policy that ultimately cedes authority for Colorado's air quality to California regulators, where standards on smog levels are based on cities like Los Angeles, Long Beach, San Francisco and Sacramento, rather than air quality in Aspen, Telluride, Colorado Springs or Denver.
Please join us for a pre-meeting breakfast, where we'll share talking points about this misguided policy. Then, join us in unified opposition as we walk across the street to the Colorado Air Quality Control Commission (AQCC) meeting.
During the AQCC meeting, CADA will briefly show that when it comes to air pollution, we're part of the solution, not the problem:
- The new vehicles we sell are exceedingly clean and produce very low emissions. Every time a new car replaces an old one, total emissions decline.
- We've voluntarily removed nearly 3,200 old, high-polluting vehicles through our non-profit organization, Clear the Air Foundation.
Please join us for the talking points breakfast, so we can demonstrate our solidarity on this important issue before the AQCC meeting.
Seating is limited to 40 in the meeting room, so RSVP today to reserve your seat!
