DEBATE - The House proceeded with 10 minutes of debate on the Capps motion to recommit with instructions. The instructions contained in the motion seek to require the bill to be reported back to the House with an amendment to add findings to the bill stating that the national program to improve vehicle fuel efficiency will provide major economic and consumer benefits. The motion would also prohibit H.R. 3409 from overturning the EPA and Department of Transportation pollution control and fuel efficiency rule for 2017 to 2025 model year vehicles if such a nullification would result in: consumers paying more for gasoline over the life of their car, a loss of jobs in the U.S. auto manufacturing industry, or a negative impact to the U.S. economy.
