Letters & Testimony

Testimony
Good afternoon. Thank you for the opportunity to present testimony on this important issue. 
 
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce strongly supports the intent of the proposed rule and applauds EPA for finally addressing a longstanding problem inherent in much of its regulatory decisionmaking processes.  
 
While the agency’s proposed reforms are clearly controversial, they are grounded in a universally accepted democratic principle: citizens have a right to the data and information that are used in the development of public policy.  
Letters
Dear Chairman Walden and Ranking Member Pallone:

Letters
TO THE MEMBERS OF THE UNITED STATES SENATE:
 
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports S. 2602, the bipartisan “Utilizing Significant Emissions with Innovative Technologies (USE IT) Act,” which would complement the recent expansion of the carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) tax credit by fostering increased collaboration between governmental and non-governmental entities involved in the construction and development of CCUS facilities and carbon dioxide (CO2) pipelines.
 
Letters

The safety and security of facilities, employees, and communities are extremely important to the Chamber and its members.  The Chamber’s members conduct risk 
management planning, invest in security, and believe that supporting an ongoing partnership between businesses and federal, state, and local officials is critical to ensuring facility safety today and in the future.
