Dear Administrator Wheeler,
Thank you for the opportunity to provide comments on the proposed rule published by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to refine and standardize cost benefit analysis procedures under the Clean Air Act. On behalf of the Ohio Business Roundtable (OBRT), we recognize the importance of this rulemaking and your efforts to codify best practices that will safeguard the state’s manufacturers and other businesses from unnecessary and significant costs while protecting Ohio’s environment, which is also an essential driver of business.
Since its inception, OBRT has worked with Ohio’s governors and legislative leaders to make Ohio more business-friendly and more competitive both nationally and internationally. Therefore, it is only natural that we also encourage our government’s regulators to develop solutions that will improve Ohio’s economic vitality and ensure that Ohio remains the ideal state in which to live, work and succeed.
