House lawmakers: No letter grades on new cars

Washington— Dozens of House lawmakers oppose a government proposal to put letter grades on the window stickers of new cars and trucks to rate a vehicle's fuel efficiency.

The Obama administration said in August it was considering adding grades ranging from A+ for the most fuel-efficient to D for the least to the stickers that provide information on new vehicles in dealer lots.

Fifty-three House members say in a letter to the Environmental Protection Agency and the Transportation Department that the proposal is "biased in favor of certain types of vehicles" and only electric cars and plug-in electric vehicles can earn an A or A+.

They support an alternative that would maintain the current label's focus on the miles per gallon rating.
