That’s the question being asked by the NAM in a new video that highlights the absurdity of proposed ozone rules and the adverse impact they stand to have on manufacturers and communities across the country.
About This Campaign »
New ozone regulations being proposed by the Obama administration and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are so restrictive, even some of our country’s most iconic National Parks will be considered non-compliant, or in non-attainment. Out of compliance on ozone means less development, fewer jobs and the potential for significant and long-term damage to our economy. If these pristine national treasures can’t meet the new standard, how can any community be expected to comply?
The truth is that current ozone levels are down nearly 20% over the last decade, under the existing standard that was set in 2008. But now the Obama administration wants to throw that one out and implement a new one – before many states have even had a chance to fully implement it.
Tell President Obama: Before forcing through a new, unnecessary, job-killing standard, implement the one we have first.
