EPA'S LATEST AIR REGULATIONS ARE CLASSIC FEDERAL OVERREACH
Washington, DC- Rep. Pete Olson (R-Sugar Land) today issued the following statement in response to todayâ€™s announcement of new EPA air regulations for oil and gas production:
"This latest wave of EPA regulations targeting the oil and gas industry leaves no doubt that the Obama Administrationâ€™s true motive is to make domestic oil and gas more expensive. Yet again, we have a one-size-fits-all approach to regulating an industry that varies widely across this great country. These new requirements will impose even higher costs on job creators which, combined with a lack of equipment needed to comply, will significantly impact the rate of drilling. And who do you think will suffer the most? Small businesses, their employees, and American consumers - that's who.
"This type of regulation is best left to the states as it always has been, not Washington bureaucrats."
