WASHINGTON (Feb. 27)—The Rubber Manufacturers Association is one of eight associations supporting radio and newspaper advertising in the Washington, D.C., area blasting a Senate bill to raise corporate average fuel economy to 35 mpg by 2013. The Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, the National Association of Manufacturers and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce are among the other signatory associations to the ads, which are aimed at raising consumer opposition to the bill. Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., one of the sponsors of the bill, accused the associations of using scare tactics and said the 35-mpg figure was achievable with currently available technology.
