Many Republicans have complained about the burdensome regulations imposed by the Environmental Protection Agency. Cal Dooley, president of the American Chemistry Council, shares their concern. He details three troublesome EPA rules in an opinion piece appearing on Politico.

rips, epa, chemistry council“First is the Environmental Protection Agency’s costly regulation of greenhouse gas emissions from stationary sources — which is likely to unilaterally raise operating costs for business and put U.S. industry at a competitive disadvantage,” Dooley writes.

“Also of significant consequence are new requirements for industrial boilers. This could crush nearly 60,000 jobs and cost businesses nearly $20 billion — $3.8 billion in the chemical industry alone. Furthermore, they are likely to cause unintended negative consequences for the environment.”

And third are “new rules that would impose overly stringent limits on allowable levels of dioxin in soil. These proposed limits are hundreds of times stricter than current standards — despite the fact that dioxin levels have been going down for decades and are likely to continue to decline as a result of existing regulations.”
