WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) released the following statement in support of the Fairness for Every Driver Act of 2019 introduced by Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) and Rep. Jason Smith (R-Mo.):
“AFPM fully supports the Fairness for Every Driver Act, which promotes true competition among vehicle technologies by eliminating ineffective subsidies and ensuring electric vehicles pay their fair share to maintain roads and bridges. American workers simply should not be forced to subsidize the purchase of these cars for the wealthiest among us, and nor should they shoulder the entire burden of maintaining U.S. roads. It is long past time to modernize policies in recognition of the fact that conventional fuels and vehicles have never been cleaner or more efficient.”
The American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (“AFPM”) is a national trade association representing nearly all U.S. refining and petrochemical manufacturing capacity. AFPM members produce the fuels that drive the U.S. economy and the chemical building blocks integral to millions of products that make modern life possible.
