On June 21, a bi-partisan group of representatives introduced The EPA Regulatory Relief Act (H.R. 2250) that would give the EPA an additional 15 months to revise emission standards for industrial boilers, incinerators, and process heaters. Reps. Morgan Griffith (R-VA), G.K. Butterfield (D-NC), John Barrow (DGA), Jim Matheson (D-UT), Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Pete Olson (R-TX), Mike Ross (D-AR), and Steve Scalise (R-LA) introduced the bill in response to a federal judge’s denying the EPA the extra time it requested to correct flaws in the rules, and forcing the agency to publish the final rules on March 21. The bill would also give regulated industries a greater amount of time to prepare for the new standards, by expanding the amount of time before compliance becomes mandatory from 3 years to 5 years.
