According to Timmons, EPA and current Administration are "moving forward with regulations that will crush economic growth" and that the overreaching agenda will raise energy costs and hurt manufacturers in many aspects. Timmons also asked whether EPA has resources or capacity needed to implement these regulations.

New Timeline Shows EPA's Intent to Overregulate Greenhouse Gas Emissions

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Executive Vice President Jay Timmons issued the following statement today on the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) announced greenhouse gas policy for power plants and refineries and its takeover of the Texas air permitting process:

"Today's announcements demonstrate the EPA's commitment to move forward with an overreaching agenda that will only raise energy costs and hurt manufacturers' ability to grow, create jobs and compete in the global marketplace. Americans need more jobs, but the EPA and this Administration are moving forward with regulations that will crush economic growth.

It is also questionable whether the EPA has the resources or the capacity to implement these burdensome and complicated regulations. Today's actions by the EPA are yet another example of the Agency's determination to use the Clean Air Act as a way to control greenhouse gas emissions and overstep the role of our elected officials in Congress.

The NAM encourages Congress to use its oversight authority to review these onerous decisions and take the necessary actions to curtail their implementation."
