Chairs Rodgers, Johnson Announce Hearing on EPA Regulations That Threaten Modern Medicine, Innovation, and Our Standard of Living
Washington, D.C. — House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and Environment, Manufacturing, & Critical Materials Subcommittee Chair Bill Johnson (R-OH) today announced a hearing titled "Exposing EPA Efforts to Limit Chemicals Needed for Life-Saving Medical Devices and Other Essential Products.”
The Chairs released the following statement:
“The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has a responsibility to protect people from serious adverse risks posed by chemicals and air pollutants. Yet many of the agency’s recent regulatory actions for the U.S. chemical sector go far beyond what is reasonable and could hurt America’s economy while pushing more innovation overseas to China. These proposals will undermine efforts to expand America’s manufacturing base, making it impossible to secure our supply chains and build products that people have come to rely on every day. That includes semiconductors, cars, lifesaving medical devices and sterilization processes, and technologies critical to our national security. We look forward to this timely discussion to address how we can protect people’s health, jobs, American manufacturing, and our national security.”
Environment, Manufacturing, and Critical Materials Subcommittee hearing titled “Exposing EPA Efforts to Limit Chemicals Needed for Life-Saving Medical Devices and Other Essential Products.
