Boiler MACT Rules Will Cost Jobs and Harm the Economy

Washington, D.C., - National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Senior Vice President for Policy and Government Relations Aric Newhouse released this statement after the House passed the EPA Regulatory Relief Act of 2011 (H.R. 2250), which will delay the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Boiler MACT rules:

"During this critical time in our nation's economic recovery, manufacturers simply cannot afford another costly and burdensome regulation that will put 230,000 jobs at risk, according to the Council of Industrial Boiler Owners. The Boiler MACT rule will cost manufacturers more than $14 billion in valuable capital that could be spent on investments to create jobs.

Manufacturers thank the House members who stood up today for jobs and voted in support of this important legislation to rein in the EPA. We will continue to work to stop the EPA's aggressive agenda. Today's vote was another step to protect jobs and competitiveness, and we strongly urge the Senate to act on the EPA Regulatory Relief Act as soon as possible." The National Association of Manufacturers is the largest manufacturing association in the United States, representing manufacturers in every industrial sector and in all 50 states. Manufacturing has a presence in every single congressional district providing good, high-paying jobs.
