EPA CO2 Regulation Pending

ACCE Webmaster on Friday, October 31, 2008 at 5:41:25 pm

Global warming is a politically charged issue, but regardless of where you fall on the global warming spectrum from true believer to ardent skeptic, one issue that chamber leaders can agree on is the potentially serious impact of EPA greenhouse gas regulation.

Following the 2007 Supreme Court decision in Massachusetts vs EPA, the EPA was instructed to institute regulations to control greenhouse gas emission.  They are currently in an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) phase and collecting public feedback on proposed regulation for CO2 and other greenhouse gases.

The pending EPA regulations would subject 98% of industrial buildings and hundreds of thousands of commercial sector properties to cumbersome, costly new regulation. The U.S. Chamber opposes CO2 regulation by the EPA on the grounds that it would cause 'regulatory chaos,' and is urging Congress to pass legislation preventing EPA from regulating greenhouse gas.

An article on PolicyClearinghouse.org provides a detailed overview, links and additional information.
