House Avoids CAFE Standards

In an effort to gain consensus on the House Energy Bill, backers of alternative fuel economy proposals withdrew them. The Energy Bill will be considered by the full House on August 3rd.

Despite the lack of increases being set by the House bill, a joint committee of the House and Senate will need to get together and reconcile the differences after the House passes their version. Since the Senate did pass a CAFE increase a couple of months ago, CAFE will come up again.

The Senate bill set a 35 mpg standard for 2020 for both cars and trucks. Automakers have opposed the new CAFE standards, saying the new laws will increase their costs dramatically, although some analysts have been saying the increase will create jobs.
