PA Chamber Welcomes EPA Proposal on Ozone Standards

HARRISBURG - PA Chamber of Business and Industry President and CEO Gene Barr issued the following statement after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released its proposal regarding national ozone standards:


“We welcome the Environmental Protection Agency’s decision to propose retaining the current National Ambient Air Quality Standards for ozone. The existing standards have been shown to protect public health and the environment, while allowing the economy to grow and securing continued emissions reductions. As our nation recovers from this pandemic, business leaders need regulatory certainty as we work to re-shore manufacturing. This proposal is welcome news on that front.”


The Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry is the state's largest broad-based business association, with its statewide membership comprising businesses of all sizes and across all industry sectors. The PA Chamber is The Statewide Voice of BusinessTM.
