NAM Files Opening Brief in PM 2.5 Suit


The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) this week filed the opening brief in litigation opposing the U.S. EPA’s proposed PM 2.5 National Ambient Air Quality Standards rule that would impose unattainable new standards on the nation’s manufacturers. The NAM estimates the new rule threatens manufacturers with nearly $200 billion in nationwide compliance costs while potentially killing nearly 1 million jobs. The OMA hosted a webinar with the Ohio EPA last month, detailing the rule’s compliance challenges, impactful regulations, and timeline for state implementation of the new rule.
