NAPA Meets with Members of 114th Congress on Regulatory Over-reach

anric2014-1croppedOn Dec. 4, NAPA Vice President for Environment, Health & Safety Dr. Howard Marks, as a member of the Regulatory Improvement Council, met with a group of senators and congressmen who will serve in the 114th Congress. The briefing focused on identifying upcoming legislative efforts to limit regulatory agency overreach. OSHA and EPA representatives presented agency views. The members of Congress and members-elect noted that overregulation stands to damage long-term U.S. global competitiveness, citing a study that identified an average of $15,000 per household in regulatory manufacturing costs.

“This is a real issue that the new Congress appears ready to approach. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) provided the greatest level of detail about how to roll back some of these EH&S regulations, including revising existing laws,” said Marks. “Johnson also indicated an interest in speaking in front of industry audiences to garner support for this type of legislation.” Pictured are (clockwise from top left) Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.), Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.), Rep. Todd Young (R-Ind.), a congressional staffer, Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-Fla.), and Sen. Angus King (I-Maine.).
