The National Association of Manufacturers today issued a news release on California Attorney General Bill Lockyer’s lawsuit against auto manufacturers. Key quotes from NAM President John Engler:
This is a blatant attempt by the California attorney general to get back-door regulation through manipulation of the courts. Already, manufactures are dealing with some of the highest legal and energy costs in the world, we shouldn’t be adding making matters worse with unwarranted lawsuits.
While our nation is in the midst of an energy crisis, lawmakers should be looking for environmentally safe and economically sound solutions, not posturing with litigation.
