Wyoming Senators Want To Know Economic Impact of EPA Regulations

Wyoming Senators Mike Enzi (R-WY) and John Barrasso (R-WY) said the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) shouldn’t be passing more regulations until the American people know the damage the current regulations are causing. Enzi and Barrasso are co-sponsoring a bill introduced Wednesday by Senator Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma that would block the EPA from finalizing any new major regulation until the agency analyzes the economic impact of its current air regulations as required by the Clean Air Act.

Enzi and Barrasso said the “EPA Employment Impact Analysis Act” would show the true cost of the EPA’s regulations. The legislation cites a number of examples where the EPA concluded that a regulation would result in the creation of jobs, but the National Economic Research Associates Economic Consulting firm, using a “whole economy” model, reported job losses in the thousands.

The bill is also co-sponsored by 27 additional Senators.
