New Regulation to Halt Business Expansion and Stunt Job Creation

WASHINGTON, D.C.—The U.S. Chamber of Commerce today voiced its opposition to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) final new National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for ground-level ozone. By requiring a 70 parts per billion (ppb) level, the agency is ignoring calls from the business community and American workers who urged the agency to keep the standard at the current 75 ppb.


The U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports the substitute amendment expected to be offered by Chairman Upton to H.R. 8, the "North American Energy Security and Infrastructure Act of 2015."


The U.S. Chamber of Commerce strongly supports the "American Crude Oil Export Equality Act," which would lift the ban on oil exports, and commends Senator Heitkamp for her leadership on this vital issue. 


Earlier this month, President Obama traveled around Alaska, stressing the need to move away from the use and development of fossil fuels.  He also spent time announcing new federal programs for Alaskans “to assist communities in developing and implementing solutions to address the impacts of climate change”.

What the President wasn’t doing was listening to the majority of Alaskans - especially those in rural communities - who support onshore and offshore development of the vast oil and gas resources in the Arctic.
