On March 12, 2018, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation filed a petition with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA” or the “Agency”) under Section 126 of the Clean Air Act (the “Act” or “CAA”) (the “Petition” or “NY Petition”).  New York claims it cannot or will not achieve and maintain compliance with the 2008 and the 2015 National Ambient Air Quality Standards (“NAAQS”) for ozone.

Dear Chairman Grassley and Ranking Member Feinstein, 
 
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce opposes S. 3214, the No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act (NOPEC), which would amend the Sherman Act to waive sovereign immunity defenses that might otherwise be used to defend against antitrust claims brought before the United States courts. 
 
The U.S. Chamber is unalterably opposed to anti-competitive conduct in commercial markets by foreign states and their agents.
