Journal 11 LTC Jennifer Stowe EPA accuses Fiat Christler of Cheating Emmisions Laws Chrystler Fiat, a company that builds cars technology has been acussed by the United States government of failing to disclose software in some of its pickups and SUVs that allows diesal car engines to emit more pollution than legally allowed. The Clean Air Act was originally passed in 1973 and was designed to protect human health and the environment from the effects of air pollution. The act is monitored by State and local governments with oversight by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and sets an emission standard that all diesel engines are required to meet. The EPA believes that Fiat Chrysler illegally manipulated software on about 100,000 pickups and sport-utility vehicles that allowed the vehicles to emit more pollution than allowed for by the Clean Air Act. The CEO of Fiat Chrysler, Sergio Marchionne, has disputed the EPA’s allegations. This could mean a huge financial blow to the company which has effected the companies sale of stock. Violations of the Clean Air Act are $37,500 per day for a civil penalty and one million per violation and/or 15 years in prison for a criminal penalty. Bibliography Bomey, N. (2017, Jan 12).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
