On June 20, a coalition of 20 business organizations including NAHB and led by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) filed the fourth in a series of briefs challenging the regulation of greenhouse gases by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
"The EPA has consistently pursued an aggressive regulatory agenda that has burdened industry with unrealistic mandates and costly regulations,” said Chip Yost, NAM’s vice president of energy and natural resources.
“These overreaching regulations have prevented industry, including manufacturers, from investing and expanding operations, stifling economic growth and job creation,” he said.
The legal briefs have been in response to a series of EPA-initiated rules, which have led to the unreasonable regulation of stationary sources of greenhouse gas emissions.
If left unchecked, the coalition has warned, these EPA mandates will have a crippling impact on manufacturers and could even result in the regulation of millions of stationary sources — from small businesses to hospitals and schools.
“This filing is the latest action in the ongoing efforts to curb the unprecedented number of regulations that will marginalize America's manufacturers, the very people who are leading the way in our economic recovery," Yost said.
Additional information about these efforts is available on NAM’s website.
