Democratic senator pushes ban on sales of new gas-powered cars by 2035

Carly Ortiz-Lytle of The Washington Examiner reports that Sen. Tom Carper of Delaware is pushing to end the sales of new gas-powered cars by 2035.

The C3 Take
  • Government bans on the sales of gas-powered vehicles are regressive and overbearing.
  • Markets, not mandates, should determine what vehicles are on the road.
  • Technological innovations and free markets have led to emissions reductions in the United States and abroad.
  • If we want to continue to reduce our emissions, we should rely on the private sector, not big government.

“Sen. Tom Carper of Delaware urged the Environmental Protection Agency to adopt strict anti-pollution standards that would end sales of new, gas-powered vehicles by 2035.”
