AWC Statement on Senate Legislation Introduced on Boiler MACT Rules

Jul 20, 2011

WASHINGTON – American Wood Council President Robert Glowinski today issued the following statement on legislation introduced in the U.S Senate to provide for achievable Boiler MACT rules.

“The bill that the Senate introduced today will provide EPA with the time they need to make necessary improvements to the Boiler MACT rules.  EPA has indicated that they were not satisfied with the rule as published, and although we believe that progress has been made toward a reasonable set of rules, our industry continues to have issues with certain aspects of what is currently proposed.  Legislation is the path by which those changes can be made.

“We commend Senators Susan Collins (Maine) and Ron Wyden (Ore.), as well as Senators Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), Mary Landrieu (La.), Mark Pryor (Ark.), and Patrick Toomey (Pa.) for introducing legislation that will provide for a regulation that protects jobs and the public health. We will continue to work with EPA as they work toward enabling sound, reasonable Boiler MACT rules through the legislative process.”
