Proposed EPA Ozone Regulations would slash thousands of Construction jobs

Posted by on in Blog

New regulations in Washington D.C would force the closure of cement plants in small, rural communities. The proposal by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to tighten Ozone standards could result in the loss of more than 45,000 construction jobs each year amongst other economical disasters.

The PCA estimates that the cement industry would comprise 900 of those jobs lost. "A cement plant is vital to the economy of its community. When one is forced to close the region loses jobs, it loses significant tax revenue for schools and public services, and it loses a strong supporter of local charities and civic activities." - said James Tocas CEO and President at PCA.

For more on what Tocas said and the PCA's arguments against the proposed changes see the link to the full article below.
