Washington, April 2, 2014 | Sarah Criser (202-225-6405)
At an Energy and Commerce Committee joint hearing between the Subcommittees on Energy and Power and Environment and the Economy, Congressman Bob Latta (R-OH) today questioned Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy regarding the unnecessary and over burdensome regulations imposed by the EPA on businesses and their impacts on Americans throughout the country.
“The EPA has imposed excessive regulations on American businesses, especially in the manufacturing sector, making it harder for them to expand and hire,” said Latta. “This unnecessary red tape is harming real American businesses and families with tidal wave effects throughout our nation’s economy. It’s time for the EPA to refocus its efforts on implementing standards that are reasonable and allow American ingenuity to thrive.”
