Democratic Michigan Rep. Elissa Slotkin voted against a bill Thursday that would rein in efforts to ban gas-powered cars after she reportedly signed a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) covering confidential development projects, including one by a Chinese Communist Party-linked electric vehicle (EV) battery company.

Slotkin, who is running for a seat in the Senate in 2024, voted against the Preserving Choice in Vehicle Purchases Act, which would “amend the Clean Air Act to prevent the elimination of the sale of internal combustion engine vehicles.” In January 2022, Slotkin reportedly signed an NDA with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) covering “any potential development project identified as confidential,” which would include projects of Chinese Communist Party-linked Gotion Inc., according to Fox News.

The bill would prevent the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from issuing future waivers to the Clean Air Act that allow states like California to pursue tighter pollution standards than those set by the federal government, and would also force the EPA to cancel any waivers issued since January 2022 that would “directly or indirectly limit the sale or use of new motor vehicles with internal combustion engines,” according to the bill’s text.
