Support Electric Vehicles & Green Jobs!

Electric vehicles have the potential to replace gas-guzzling cars on our roads. Widespread adoption of this technology could reduce emissions -- improving public health, slowing global warming and making smart investments in the U.S. economy.

  • Improving Public Health: In Chicago, vehicle emissions are a major source of ozone pollution and toxic particle pollution. This results in asthma attacks, emergency room visits, premature death and Air Quality Action days that limit Chicagoans’ ability to participate in outdoor activities safely.
  • Slowing Global Warming: Globally, vehicle emissions are a major source of greenhouse gases and contribute to climate change. With climate change accelerating as the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere exceeds 400 parts per million, it is essential that we act immediately to reduce vehicle emissions.
  • Catalyzing the Economy: Electric vehicles can have a positive impact on the Midwestern economy, the heart of the U.S. auto industry. We manufacture and assemble cars!

Please use the form below to send a letter to your Representative  urging continued support of strong vehicle emissions standards and incentives for electric vehicles.
