If you’ve heard that proposed EPA regulations like Utility MACT will create jobs, you haven’t heard the half of it.
In fact, you’ve heard only one quarter of the story. Coming EPA regulations will create some jobs in the industry, such as installing pollution controls on power plants. But for each one of these jobs created, at least three will be lost.
Even accounting for jobs gained, proposed regulations will lead to 183,000 net jobs lost annually.
There’s still time to act. Write your legislator today and let them know that you’re opposed to EPA regulations threatening America’s recovery.
These regulations are a preventable threat to America’s recovery. Not only will 1.65 million jobs be lost in the next few years, electricity costs could increase by double digits in parts of the country as nearly 39.1 gigawatts of coal-fueled power plants are forced into premature retirement.
It’s time to ACT on MACT.
