House Passes Measure to Halt EPA Regs, Speed Up Keystone XL Decision

By December 13, 2011Energy

Early this evening the House passed H.R. 3630 by a vote of 234 to 193. The bill contains several provisions important to manufacturers.

The legislation will halt the EPA’s harmful Boiler MACT regulations in their current form. These burdensome regulations are causing uncessary uncertainty throughout the economy and impeding job growth.

Additionally, the bill moves the Keystone XL pipeline project closer to approval by requiring the Administration to approve the project within 60 days of enactment. The Keystone XL pipeline will create 118,000 much-needed jobs and get Americans back to work immediately.
