There’s a new effort to protect your freedom to purchase the vehicles you want: The Preserving Choice in Vehicle Purchases Act.
Simply put, this proposed legislation aims to maintain your right to pick the technology that powers your motor vehicles. Whether that’s a traditional internal combustion engine, electric motor, hybrid drivetrain, hydrogen power, or beyond—innovation and competition should drive the automotive market, not a government mandate.

The link above will send you to a form that lets you easily notify your lawmaker to ensure your voice is heard in Congress.
The Preserving Choice in Vehicle Purchases Act is a response to the California Air Resources Board’s Advanced Clean Cars II regulations, which specify that 35% of new cars, SUVs, and small trucks sold will be zero-emissions starting in 2026, increasing to 68% in 2030 and 100% in 2035.
If the EPA allows CARB’s regulations to take effect in California, it could lead to 17 other states that have previously followed all or part of California’s previous clean-car rules to adopt similar proposals. That means the mandate could apply to more than 40% of the vehicle purchases in the U.S., creating a ripple effect across the country.
Without this effort, emerging technology such as hydrogen, new synthetic fuels, and multiple renewables could be impacted by a focus on battery electric vehicles.
Tell your lawmakers to support the Preserving Choice in Vehicle Purchases Act and protect your freedom to purchase the vehicles that fit your needs and resources!
