Republicans Want EPA Cost Estimates

Wed, 20 Oct 2010 16:16:14 CDT

Two key Republican committee members want EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson to report on the compliance costs for some 40 proposed or finalized Clean Air Act regulations aimed at curbing greenhouse gas emissions. In a letter to Administrator Jackson, Representative Joe Barton of Texas, the ranking member of the House Energy & Commerce Committee, and Representative Michael Burgess, also of Texas and the ranking member of the Oversight & Investigations Subcommittee, wrote – we are concerned about the highly accelerated pace at which EPA is issuing complex and expensive regulatory proposals under the Clean Air Act.

Their letter continued, - just as appropriate implementation of the Clean Air Act is essential for protecting the public health, appropriate consideration of the economic and employment impacts of regulations under the Act is essential for protecting the nation’s economic health. EPA’s available compliance cost estimates identify at least eight rules that will cost one-billion dollars or more.

Those programs include: Proposed Ozone Standards; Final Light-Duty Vehicle Rule; Proposed Industrial Boiler Rule; Final Nitrogen Dioxide NAAQs Standard; final Sulfur Dioxide NAAQs Standards; and the Proposed Transport Rule.
