Boiler MACT amendment added to transportation bill
A majority of the U.S. Senate voted March 8 in support of an amendment to the transportation bill to develop affordable and achievable Boiler MACT rules.
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, introduced the MACT amendment and gained support from senators on both sides of the aisle, according to the American Forest & Paper Association.
“Both chambers of Congress have voiced their support for the Boiler MACT legislation – an issue that has garnered bi-partisan support since the rules were proposed,” said AF&PA CEO Donna Harman. “We applaud the leaders from both parties who have stood up for the hard-working men and women whose jobs depend on a healthy American manufacturing environment. We remain committed to working to get a final set of rules that are reasonable, and we believe a legislative solution is needed to prevent further court challenge and give facilities time to comply.”
