The next MEMA Policy Breakfast will delve into the new fuel economy standards proposed by the Trump administration and how they could impact the motor vehicle parts supplier industry – and the association will release a new white paper, “Fuel Economy Standards: Investments and Jobs in the U.S. Are on the Line.” The event is set for 8-9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 27, at the National Press Club, Washington, D.C.
Suppliers have made long-term planning decisions committing to developing the necessary technologies and materials for their customers to meet the targets set for MYs 2017 – 2021 and the augural standards for MYs 2022 – 2025. The MEMA Policy Breakfast will explore how eliminating progress in the efficiency and emissions standards for light vehicles starting in 2021 and extending until 2026 puts motor vehicle suppliers at the greatest risk of stranded investments.
Ann Wilson, MEMA senior vice president, government affairs, will moderate the discussion. Panelists currently confirmed are Greg Garr, director, market creation, Technical Center, Umicore Autocat USA Inc.; Laurie Holmes, MEMA senior director, environmental policy; and Matt Meenan, senior director of public affairs, Aluminum Association. Additional panelists will be announced soon.
