More on U.S. EPA’s Proposal for Stricter Air Mandates

As reported earlier, the U.S. EPA is considering a rule to impose stricter air standards on particulate matter known as PM2.5. This development comes as PM2.5 levels in the U.S. have dropped 44% since 2000 — and throughout Ohio, as reported by Ohio EPA.

On Feb. 21-23, the U.S. EPA will hold a hearing on its proposal. The OMA is pushing back against this unnecessary change, which would hinder manufacturing operations. Concerned members have multiple opportunities to engage. Contact OMA staff to learn how.
