Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) Offers Legislative Relief for 2015 Ozone Regulation

By February 28, 2017Shopfloor Policy

Sen. Jeff Flake’s (R-AZ) commitment to addressing the significant challenges created by the 2015 ozone standards is encouraging to manufacturers who continue to grapple with one of the most expensive regulations ever. While the ozone regulation hinders manufacturers across the country, compliance is particularly challenging in western states where, at times, background levels approach or even exceed the federal standards. Sen. Flake’s Ozone Regulatory Delay and Extension of Assessment Length Act of 2017 (ORDEAL Act) and the Commonsense Legislative Exceptional Events Reform Act (CLEER Act) would take important steps toward addressing these challenges while reducing some of the costliest aspects of the 2015 ozone standards.

Manufacturers support Sen. Flake and others in Congress who continue to work toward commonsense legislative solutions to the 2015 ozone regulation.
