 GENERAL MOTORS ISSUES RESPONSE TO THE NATIONAL ACADEMY
 OF SCIENCES (NAS) FUEL ECONOMY STUDY
 WASHINGTON, April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- A General Motors spokesperson issued the following response to the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) fuel economy study:
 By addressing some important trade-offs associated with higher vehicle fuel economy, the NAS committee has made a valuable contribution to future discussions of this complex subject. We certainly agree with its conclusions that adverse safety consequences of higher fuel economy merit comprehensive analysis by NHTSA, and that current CAFE rules clearly discriminate against full-line American manufacturers in favor of small car producers. The report also shows that without major technological breakthroughs, emissions control requirements will constrain fuel economy progress.
