American Wood Council President Robert Glowinski issued the following statement regarding House Energy and Commerce Committee approval of H.R. 2250 – the Environmental Protection Agency Regulatory Relief Act.
“I applaud the Committee’s action to protect jobs in the wood products industry by voting in favor of H.R. 2250. Under Chairman Upton’s leadership, the Committee demonstrated the decisiveness Americans need to see from Congress at a time when the economy continues to struggle.
“Without legislation to provide EPA with the time they need to rewrite the current Boiler MACT rules, tens of thousands of jobs could be in jeopardy in our industry. The EPA Regulatory Relief Act provides that time along with the regulatory certainty that companies need to plan for future business investments. We now call on the full House to pass this measure in a bipartisan fashion as soon as possible.”
