According to Fox News Digital, Governing for Impact, a George Soros-funded organization, recently published a statement to lawmakers informing the Biden admin. that the Clean Air Act gives the Environmental Protection Agency jurisdiction to “regulate or prohibit” the production and sale of gasoline.
GFI suggests utilizing the Clean Air Act.
“The Clean Air Act gives the Environmental Protection Agency a number of instruments to minimize air pollution,” according to the memo. “Section 211(c) empowers the EPA to ‘regulate or prohibit’ the production and sale of any motor vehicle gas (or fuel additive) if the resulting emissions damage the public’s health or safety (or damage emissions control systems).”
The memo, produced by GFI and the climate organization Evergreen Collaborative, suggested that the EPA may compel gas stations to install charging stations for electric vehicles on their property.
“Under this power, more strict rules on vehicle fuels — for example, forcing particular gas stations or national chains to construct electric vehicle charging stations — might both reduce lethal air pollution (such as nitrogen oxides & particulate matter) and stimulate the utilization of zero-emissions transportation,” the document continued.
The letter, according to GFI and the Evergreen Collaborative, intends to “enable supporters and policymakers” to reduce automobile emissions.
While the groups’ memo noted that restricting gasoline is permissible underneath the Clean Air Act, they advised against implementing a blanket ban. According to the document, outright banning fuel would very certainly result in the Supreme Court overturning the ruling “despite the unambiguous meaning of the legislation.”
What is the history of GFI?
Governing for Impact bragged in a presentation and internal documents that the current government has enacted more than 20 of its regulation suggestions.
Fox News Digital revealed the covert group, which was created in 2019, in April. GFI is an initiative of the New Venture Fund, a charity incubator that works as a “fiscal sponsor” and grants tax status to other businesses, according to the outlet.
GFI has already been working in the background with the Biden government to shape laws and regulations, according to Fox News Digital.
In April, Novel Venture Fund said to Fox News Digital, “As a fiscal partner, New Venture Fund gives administrative and operational assistance that allows supporters and philanthropists to rapidly and efficiently introduce innovative solutions to today’s greatest challenges. New Venture Fund expressly does not participate in political activities or assist any electoral campaigns, and we strictly adhere to all applicable disclosure rules and standards.”
According to the Open Society Foundation funding database, Soros’ Foundations to Encourage Open Society has contributed more than $5 million towards the New Venture Funds for GFI. Furthermore, Soros’ Open Society Policy Institute contributed almost $7 million to GFI’s action fund.
Parker Thayer of the Capital Research Center told Fox News Digital, “Governing for Impact hides in the shadows, but the evidence overwhelmingly demonstrates they whisper in the ears of Biden Admin. regulators.”
“The fact that GFI now encourages the government to impose severe restrictions that could reward their largest supporter, Mr. Soros,” Thayer noted, “should enrage Americans of both parties.”
