WHAT’S AT STAKE »
Our National Parks Could Violate Clean Air Laws?
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 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are so restrictive, even some of our country’s most iconic National Parks will be considered non-compliant, or in nonattainment. 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, and the current standard that was set in 2008 has not been fully implemented. But now the Administration wants to throw that one out and reset the targets – before many states have even had a chance to comply
Tell President Obama: We can’t afford a new ozone standard— instruct EPA to let states and businesses implement the one we have first.
