Urge Senate to Act Now to Pass Bipartisan Legislation to Save Jobs

Washington, D.C., - National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Vice President for Energy and Resources Policy Chip Yost issued this statement on the decision by the U.S. District Court in the case of the Sierra Club against the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to repeal the stay of the Boiler MACT and Incinerator rules:

"The court's ruling to revoke the stay of the Boiler MACT and Incinerator rules will severely harm manufacturers' competitiveness, add to their uncertainty and cost vital jobs. It is already 20 percent more expensive to manufacture in the U.S. compared to our trade partners, and regulations such as Boiler MACT continue to set us back. The ruling by the court underscores the critical need for Congress to pass legislation to address the damaging Boiler MACT and Incinerator regulations.

The EPA Regulatory Relief Act received bipartisan support when it passed the House last October, and manufacturers urge the Senate to act now to save jobs. Manufacturers are looking to Washington for policies that will eliminate the uncertainty of harmful regulations such as Boiler MACT and enable them to invest, grow and create jobs."

Boiler MACT a threat

CIBO estimated that the Boiler MACT rules could cost up to 16,000 jobs if enacted. What we need to be aware of is that the regulations while meant to protect have a very significant impact on the livelihood of everyday people . Since we have no replacement for these people’s jobs that will be lost we need to be more aware of what we’re doing as we can’t truly afford for more people to both lose their jobs and stay out of work. Let’s at least be sure that what we’re doing is sensible for the time that we are facing these economic challenges.
