Tim O'Connor, Director of Environmental Defense Fund's (EDF's) California Climate Initiatives commented on the decision saying, "This is a great day for public health and the economy of California. The court clearly upheld a groundbreaking policy that will protect consumers and the environment by diversifying our fuel mix and providing more choices for a clean energy future."
Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) Senior Attorney, David Pettit said, "Today's victory ensures Californians are given better, cleaner choices at the fuel pump, which is something everyone can support. This policy will spur American ingenuity to produce cleaner fuels with fewer impacts to our environment. The standard is working to reduce pollution while decreasing the state's reliance on oil. "We're already on track to achieve these goals, and today's ruling reaffirms California as a national leader for common sense actions to curb climate change."
