Statement for the Record on the U.S. EPA’s Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (“MATS”)
My name is Heath Knakmuhs, and I am Vice President and Policy Counsel for the
Global Energy Institute, an affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (“Chamber”).
The Chamber is the world’s largest business federation, representing the interests of more
than three million businesses and organizations of every size, sector and region. The
mission of the Global Energy Institute is to unify policymakers, regulators, business
leaders, and the American public behind a common sense energy strategy to help keep
America secure, prosperous, and clean. The Chamber appreciates the opportunity to
testify today in support of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (“EPA”)
reconsideration of the supplemental finding and residual risk and technology review of its
Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (“MATS”), applicable to coal- and oil-fired electric
utility generating units.
