The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has denied California’s waiver request to regulate carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from automobiles starting in 2009. The CO2 rules were issued by the California Air Resources Board and adopted by 12 other states. The EPA overturned the regulations on the same day that President Bush signed into law an energy bill to raise the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) Standards for passenger cars and light trucks by 40% to an industry average of 35 miles per gallon by 2020.
As a SEMA member, one of your most important opportunities is to help identify industry leaders to serve on the SEMA Board of Directors. Our industry has many talented individuals, but oftentimes those talents aren’t immediately apparent to the committee that is responsible for selecting the final candidates. So please, take a moment to tell us about whom you would recommend as a potential nominee. We also welcome self-nominations; they are often the best information we get because we receive background, experience and visionary information straight from the source.
