OMA to U.S. EPA: Stricter PM2.5 Standard Is Unnecessary

The OMA has raised opposition to the U.S. EPA’s proposed rule for stricter air standards on particulate matter known as PM2.5. The proposal comes even though PM2.5 levels in the U.S. have dropped 44% since 2000 — and throughout Ohio.

OMA President Ryan Augsburger submitted these comments, noting that the proposed standards would harm manufacturers and possibly jeopardize clean energy manufacturing.
