Is EPA making regulatory "end run" to regulate greenhouse gas emissions? (3/4)
“We are challenging EPA’s ‘Endangerment Finding’ determination and focusing on whether they asked the right questions, sought the right information and whether they are meeting their burden under the standards set forth in the Clean Air Act,” said John Engler, president of the National Association of Manufacturers.
“If EPA moves forward and begins regulating stationary sources, it will open the door for them to regulate everything from industrial facilities to farms to even American homes. Such a move would further complicate a permitting process that EPA is not equipped to handle, while increasing costs to the manufacturing sector.”
According to EPA, the “Endangerment Finding” and subsequent regulations will trigger new permitting requirements for more than 6 million stationary sources. These 6 million sources include 200,000 manufacturing facilities, approximately 20,000 farms, and another 200,000 other sources such as universities, schools and even American homes, impacting every aspect of the U.S. economy.
