Boehner to Meet With Big Three U.S. Automakers Wednesday
Congressman John Boehner
June 5, 2007
WASHINGTON, D.C. Congressman John Boehner (R-West Chester) announced today that he will meet Wednesday with the leaders of Americas leading auto producers. The meeting will take place amid growing speculation that some Democrats are gearing up to pass new fuel-efficiency mandates that could result in a loss of American jobs and a loss of choice for families and consumers who value auto safety as well as fuel-efficiency and conservation.
Boehner issued the following statement regarding the upcoming meeting:
American families deserve affordable energy, a clean environment, and the opportunity to purchase affordable family cars that are fuel-efficient and safe. None of these priorities can be achieved through government policies that strangle the private sector, destroy American jobs, and eliminate consumer choice. Nor can they be achieved through government policies that shield American companies from competition and the obligation to innovate. America will be served best by a comprehensive energy policy that not only increases conservation and efficiency, but spurs an increase in all forms of domestic energy production as well. I look forward to meeting with the leaders of our nations largest auto manufacturers, and talking with them about the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for working families and our economy.
Boehner represents Ohios 8th District, which includes all of Darke, Miami and Preble counties, most of Butler and Mercer counties, and the northeastern corner of Montgomery County. He was first elected to Congress in 1990.
