Washington, D.C. -- House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement calling for Joe Biden to reverse his decision to phase out gas-powered vehicles in an effort to push American consumers to electric vehicles. 

“Joe Biden’s ban of gas-powered vehicles is the most recent and most extreme example of Far-Left Democrats crushing hardworking American families. Joe Biden and the Democrat Party are pushing their radical agenda onto the American people and threatening our economic security in the process. We’ve already seen the disastrous consequences of similar policies in Democrat led New York, resulting in higher prices and a lack of access that leaves behind people like my constituents in rural Upstate New York and the North Country. Joe Biden should learn from Kathy Hochul’s failures and reverse his decision to phase out the gas-powered vehicles many Americans depend on.”
