Grassley presses EPA for review

Senator Chuck Grassley, (R-Iowa), is pressing the Environmental Protection Agency to make a good faith effort to review the impact of proposed rules on dust. In a letter to EPA administrator Lisa Jackson, Grassley has expressed his concern that excessive dust control measures would slow economic development and impose significant costs on family farms.

President Obama recently directed each agency to review its rules and regulations with an eye toward economic harm. Grassley calls the EPA’s attitude toward the President’s directive - unfortunate. According to the Senator, - once again, the agency seems completely oblivious to the huge impact the rules and regulations it releases have on the general public and agriculture in particular.
The EPA currently is considering approval of the Second Draft Policy Assessment for Particulate Matter.   If approved, Grassley says - the most stringent and unparalleled regulation of dust in the nation’s history would be placed on rural America. The current levels of 150ug/m3 would be revised down to 65-85 ug/m3.
