The White House is trying to gain support from the manufacturing sector by withdrawing looming regulations on factory emissions, but is running into political conflicts, reports DailyCaller.com.

obama, environmentalists, manufacturersPresident Barack Obama recently made high-profile visits to factories around the country as the sector continues to take hits, with 5,000 jobs killed in May, raw-material price surges, and stifled free-trade agreements.

Now, companies are concerned that the feds “are busy turning out regulations left and right that are causing a lot of uncertainty and angst,” Chad Moutray of the National Association of Manufacturers told the Caller.

Obama is being squeezed on both sides of the emissions issue, with environmental groups criticizing his withdrawal of regulations to placate manufacturers.

“It … provides yet another example of the Obama administration throwing in the towel on an initiative to protect public health, safety, and the environment,” said Rena Steinzor of the Center for Progressive Reform.

“With about 17 months left until the 2012 elections, it appears environmentalists had better brace themselves for a bumpy, disappointing ride ahead.”
