New TV Spot Underscores Unworkable Proposed Ozone Rules

Manufacturers Highlight Air Quality Progress and Risks of Tightening Ozone Standard

Washington, D.C., August 4, 2015 – Following the launch last week of an integrated television, print and digital advertisement campaign that focused on the unworkability of the Obama Administration’s proposed ozone regulation, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) released a second ad set to run in the Washington, D.C., market. 


“The real shame is that the ozone reductions we continue to see are happening in large part due to the hard work of manufacturers whose production, jobs and livelihood are threatened by this proposal,” said NAM Vice President of Energy and Resources Policy Ross Eisenberg. “Ozone levels have dropped by nearly 20 percent since 2000, and progress will continue for the next decade and beyond, but by proposing more stringent federal standards now, the Administration is pushing beyond what is technologically possible in many parts of the country. This latest series of ads is a gut check for Washington and a sign to hit the pause button on this regulation.”
