Supreme Court Hears Manufacturers’ Challenge to the EPA’s Greenhouse Gas Regulations
Washington, D.C., 02/24/14 - The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and other associations today argued against the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) greenhouse gas regulations for stationary sources before the U.S. Supreme Court. NAM Senior Vice President and General Counsel Linda Kelly issued this statement following today’s sitting:
“Manufacturers have long argued that the EPA’s greenhouse gas regulations for stationary sources are some of the most costly, complex and harmful they have ever faced. These regulations threaten manufacturers’ global competitiveness by imposing harsh new permitting requirements on millions of manufacturing facilities, farms, energy providers and other stationary sources, negatively impacting every aspect of our economy. Today, the highest court in the land heard that message. While the Supreme Court’s decision will be a critical moment for manufacturers, the NAM—through the Manufacturers’ Center for Legal Action—will continue to fight against the EPA’s overly aggressive regulatory agenda.”
