President Bush Hates CAFE Too

Word out of the White House is President Bush is united with Detroit automakers and Toyota in opposing the proposed Senate CAFE changes. But rather than just lobby Congress with the persistence of a whiny three-year-old industry on the brink of collapse, Bush could actually crush the bill once and for all. Alan Hubbard, director of the president's National Economic Council said the administration would likely veto any bill that combines truck and car fuel economy under one standard. The Senate bill sets a standard of 35 mpg by 2020 for both cars and trucks. [The Detroit News]
