NAM Warns of Negative Impacts from EPA's proposed NAAQS.
Press Release Summary:
June 19, 2012 - NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons called scope and impact of proposed new National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for fine particulate matter (PM2.5) released by EPA "troubling." Citing current 8.2% unemployment, Timmons said manufacturers "can't afford this new standard," especially given its strict nature and the stalling economy. "The end result," according to Timmons, would be "a devastating impact on our economy and job creation."
