Manufacturers to Challenge EPA Ozone Regulation in Court

“The EPA’s ozone regulation, which could be one of the most expensive in history, is unworkable and overly burdensome for manufacturers and America’s job creators. Manufacturers across the United States need regulations that provide balance and allow us to be globally competitive.

Further, our air quality is improving, and ozone levels are down more than 30 percent since 1980, yet the Administration insists on moving forward with tightening an already stringent standard. The MCLA and the NAM will continue to fight this new standard that inflicts undue pain on the companies that build things in America.”

NAM Senior Vice President and General Counsel Linda Kelly, December 23, 2015

Ozone Standard Will Kill American Jobs

“It's not just manufacturers who will bear this burden, Americans across the country will feel the costs of this expensive, new regulation.”

Understand the Issue


 By a nearly three-to-one margin, Americans think that a bigger problem for their local area is “less economic growth and job opportunities caused by regulations” (66%) rather than “lower air quality caused by pollution” (23%).

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.
