Letter to Congressional Committee Chairmen Recommending Extension of Automobile Emission Standards.


American Government

Letter to Congressional Committee Chairmen Recommending Extension of Automobile Emission Standards.

President Gerald R. Ford
July 28, 1975


[Dated July 26, 1975. Released July 28, 1975]

Dear Mr. Chairman:

On June 27th, I transmitted to the Congress a special message which described the conclusions from a detailed executive branch review of the air quality, health, energy, and consumer cost implications of alternative automobile emission standards. I recommended that 1975-76 standards for automobile emissions be extended by the Congress through model year 1981.

I believe it important that the Congress and the public have a full opportunity to hear in detail the findings of our studies and the basis for my conclusions that existing standards should be continued. I recognize that the hearings held by your subcommittee on auto emissions ended before our studies were completed. I urge you to hold another hearing on this matter so Administration witnesses can present the findings.

Sincerely,

GERALD R. FORD

Note: This is the text of identical letters addressed to the Honorable Jennings Randolph, chairman of the Senate Public Works Committee, and the Honorable Harley O. Staggers, chairman of the House Interstate and Foreign Commerce Committee.
