CPA Urges Government Not to Lower Fine Particulate Matter Air Quality Standard

CPA, along with approximately 70 industry associations, recently signed a letter to the White House urging the government to stop the EPA from lowering the National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for fine particulate matter (PM2.5). Decreasing the PM2.5 standard would classify additional areas of the U.S. as non-attainment with potentially severe economic consequences, including job losses, reduced investment and more barriers to receiving or updating operating permits. Additionally, the National Manufacturers Association (NAM) is inviting U.S. manufacturers to sign a letter asking the EPA to reconsider its proposal and urging Congress to oppose lowering the standard through its Grassroots center.
