ZETA Opposes DeJoy Move to Buy Gas-Powered Vehicles

February 23, 2021

WASHINGTON, DC — In response to the recent vehicle fleet decision by the United States Postal Service (USPS), the Zero Emission Transportation Association’s Executive Director Joe Britton issued the following statement:

“U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy is trying to lock our postal vehicle fleet into decades of carbon-intensive transportation.  This directly conflicts with the Administration’s stated goals and is certain to see swift pushback from appropriators who have sought to drive USPS vehicle electrification. Many have questioned whether DeJoy has actually had USPS’ best interests in mind, but this reckless misstep is a new low. We encourage others to join us in speaking out about this decision and call on Congress to act on what is a clear invitation from DeJoy to reverse his decision.”

Joe Britton is the Executive Director of the Zero Emission Transportation Association, which is the first industry-backed coalition of its kind advocating for 100% of vehicles sold by 2030 to be electric.  He has spent over fifteen years working in the U.S. Senate.
