United States. Government Publishing Office
This is from the July 14, 2009 hearing, "Transportation's Role in Climate Change and Reducing Greenhouse Gases," before the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. From Barbara Boxer's opening statement: "As we work to pass legislation that will reduce our dependence on foreign oil, create millions of clean energy jobs, and protect our children from pollution, we need to consider global warming pollution from the transportation sector. Why? According to the EPA, transportation activities account for one-third of all U.S. global warming emissions. The Obama administration has already taken important steps this year to address global warming pollution from motor vehicles. I want to thank them for their action. And I want to thank Secretary LaHood, and, of course, Hon. Regina McCarthy, who are here with us. In May, the President brought together the Federal Government, the State of California, and the auto industry behind a nationwide program to cut new carbon emissions from vehicles and raise gas mileage requirements, along with new national automobile emissions standards that follow California's lead." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Ray LaHood, Regina McCarthy, Ralph Becker, David Bragdon, Steve Winkelman, and Ray Kuntz.
