Kentucky Attorney General Coleman Slams EPA’s Extreme EV Mandate

FRANKFORT, KY – Attorney General Russell Coleman released the following statement after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) enacted its most aggressive rule yet to regulate vehicle emissions:

“As automakers slam the brakes on their EV plans, the Biden Administration’s EPA is plowing ahead with its radical green agenda to drive gas-powered cars off the road. The consumer demand just isn’t there for a rushed transition to electric vehicles. And even if they wanted to buy an EV, many families can’t afford one thanks to historic inflation.

“The Biden Administration and its EPA need to reconnect with reality. Our office has already taken the EPA to court twice this month to stop its regulatory rampage. Instead of making an election-year ploy to his base, President Biden should focus on the problems that keep American families awake at night: violent crime, deadly fentanyl pouring across our southern border, and inflation that is breaking the bank.”

Ford, which employs nearly 13,000 Kentuckians at its Louisville facilities, reportedly lost more than $60,000 per electric vehicle sold in the first quarter of 2023.

Earlier this month, Attorney General Coleman and West Virginia’s Attorney General Patrick Morrisey led a 24-state coalition to challenge the EPA’s devastating air quality rule. General Coleman also joined a 24-state lawsuit challenging the EPA’s methane gas emissions regulation.
