New Ozone Rule Will Inflict Pain on Manufacturers

“Today, the Obama Administration finalized a rule that is overly burdensome, costly and misguided. For months, the Administration threatened to impose on manufacturers an even harsher rule, with even more devastating consequences. After an unprecedented level of outreach by manufacturers and other stakeholders, the worst-case scenario was avoided. But make no mistake: the new ozone standard will inflict pain on companies that build things in America—and destroy job opportunities for American workers. Now it’s time for Congress to step up and take a stand for working families.” Jay Timmons President and CEO, National Association of Manufacturers

Three-in-four (76%) respondents believe that stricter federal air quality regulations would increase their taxes; 65% believe they would make it harder for local businesses to start or grow; and 78% believe that they would increase costs on everyday goods and services.

Most respondents prefer that decisions about the federal air quality be handled by local officials (46%) or state officials (29%). Less than one-in-five (18%) respondents think the federal government should have more of a say over air quality regulations in their local area.
