Press Release

Christopher Guith, acting president of the U.S. Chamber’s Global Energy Institute, issued the following statement regarding EPA Administrator Wheeler’s recent directive on Cost-Benefit Analyses Memorandum.

Dear Chairman Barrasso and Ranking Member Carper:
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce appreciates the Committee holding the hearing, “Examining Legislation to Address the Risks Associated with Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS).” The Chamber is committed to proactively working with legislators, regulators, and all stakeholders to establish risk-based standards that protect human health and the environment. While well-intentioned, the legislation to be considered at the hearing should be improved to more appropriately address issues related to PFAS.
Dear Chairman Tonko and Ranking Member Shimkus:
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce writes regarding the hearing, “Legislative Proposals to Protect Americans at Risk of PFAS Contamination & Exposure.”

The seventh annual observance of Infrastructure Week provides an opportunity to highlight the state of our nation’s infrastructure and discuss the projects, technologies and policies necessary to make America prosperous and safe.

Across America, business leaders, workers, advocates and elected officials will raise awareness about the need for new, enhanced and expanded infrastructure whether it’s bridges and highways, pipelines and transmission lines, ports and dams, or railways and tunnels.
