Senator James Inhofe: EPA poses a threat to economic growth

A new report from the US Senate Environment and Public Works Committee examines the damage caused by EPA regulations. Senator James Inhofe, a long-time leader of this committee, has this to say:

“I think everyone is aware of the huge cost to the American taxpayer on these huge bills that the Democrats are trying to push through, but they’re not as aware of the cost of over-regulation. These regulations are the EPA, having to do with industrial boilers, having to do with ozone requirements, the endangerment finding. They would lose hundreds of thousands of jobs, and the cost is just tremendous. We cannot be globally competitive as long as we have over-regulation in America.”
