This week, the Biden administration rolled out its final PM2.5 ruling, lowering the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for fine particulate matter to 9 micrograms per cubic meter.
Lowering this standard will force manufacturers to comply with unattainable emissions requirements, cost as much as $197 billion in lost U.S. economic activity, and result in a loss of 973,900 jobs nationwide.
The OMA’s President, Ryan Augsburger, issued a statement on the ruling, highlighting that the unobtainable standards will be disastrous for Ohio’s manufacturing industry.
