Washington Auto Show Media Day features automaker, regulator presentations on April 4

A highlight of the Washington Auto Show Media Day on April 4 will be Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler’s speech at 8:30 a.m. The EPA recently withdrew from talks with California to reach an agreement on a single national standard for fuel economy, with each side blaming the other. Neither side moved much from its original position. Future developments in this arena will definitely affect Washington area dealers, as Maryland follows California standards and Virginia follows federal ones.

Another highlight will be Anthony Foxx, former secretary of the Department of Transportation and current Lyft chief policy officer, speaking at 12:30 p.m. The rest of the day will feature presentations by automakers and automotive organizations.

All WANADA dealers and Kindred-line member representatives are urged to attend the Washington Auto Show Media Day, at the Washington Convention Center.
