Missouri county officials oppose EPA’s emission standards

From NAM’s Manufacturing Economy Daily blog

The Cedar County (MO) Republican (9/10) reports that Cedar County officials have voiced their opposition to the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed air emissions standards, with County Clerk Peggy Kenney stating that implementation of the new rules mean “It will be easier for states and counties to fall into non-compliance, and non-compliance creates plenty of problems for communities like Cedar County.”

According to Kenney, the new standard is “a total overreach by the EPA,” as she points out the current standards have not yet been met. The piece points out that the data from a NAM consultant group indicates that implementing a new standard will cost Missouri “28,000 jobs each year and have a $1.9 billion negative overall economic impact.”
