Manufacturers Applaud House Action to Promote Regulatory Certainty

House Vote Signals Strong Support, Now Time for Senate Action

Washington, D.C., June 24, 2015 – National Association of Manufacturers Vice President of Energy and Resources Policy Ross Eisenberg issued the following statement after the House passed the bipartisan Ratepayer Protection Act (H.R. 2042):

“Manufacturers are leading the way in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. However, we need balanced regulations that allow for innovation and access to affordable and reliable energy. The House took a step forward today to address this critical need by passing legislation that will create more certainty for state governments and manufacturers across the United States. The Environmental Protection Agency’s greenhouse gas regulation could lead to considerable uncertainty that will delay investments and slow growth. Manufacturers now look to the Senate for leadership and action.”
