What ever happened to HR22 FAST Act?


“Signed into law on December 4, 2015, the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act requires the U.S. Department of Transportation, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and U.S. Department of Energy to develop regulations for passenger vehicle tire fuel efficiency standards by December 2017. Some exemptions apply. For more information, refer to H.R. 22, Section 24331 (PDF).

Tire pressure sticker”

Just curious December came and went, did this somehow get bypassed?

We were supposed to have RR ratings on tires by now.

Anything related to efficiency or conservation these days is frowned upon and sabotaged.

That's my guess.

People only care about fuel efficiency when gas is up over $3 or $3.50 a gallon and can't afford gas for their gas hog.
Remember democrats had the super majority during highish gas prices and their answer to fuel efficiency was to make gas even more expensive by trying to pass carbon cap and tax.
I don't even think the government bothered to raised cafe standards till later on.
So in reality no one cares about your fuel efficiency, doesn't matter if they are democrat, republican, independent, libertarian, socialist, communist, fascist, statist, dictatorship.
