Bucshon Votes to Preserve Consumer Choice, Stop California Democrats and President Biden from Dictating the Vehicles Americans can Drive

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Representative Larry Bucshon, M.D. (R-IN-08) joined his colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives in voting to pass the Preserving Choice in Vehicle Purchasing Act (H.R. 1435). This vote is a rejection of the Biden administration’s effort to ban the sale of new combustion engines by 2035, using climate change as a political tool to strengthen Washington Democrats’ control of the economy. H.R. 1435, which Dr. Bucshon is a cosponsor of, will protect America’s automotive future and defend the American people’s ability to choose the affordable vehicles that best suits their needs.  

“Every Hoosier and American should have the freedom to decide what vehicle is best for themselves and their family.  Electric vehicles may make sense for some Americans, but not for others – particularly those living in rural America where the infrastructure to support electric vehicles simply doesn’t exist,” said Dr. Bucshon. “The Biden administration’s rush-to-green energy agenda will hurt American automotive workers and embolden China, who controls the vast majority of critical minerals for electric vehicles. We must preserve consumer choice and maintain competition in order to ensure access to reliable and affordable cars for all Americans.”

Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. represents Indiana’s 8th Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives and is a senior member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
