first_imgCoats supported legislation to block an EPA regulation Wednesday.WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.) today supported legislation to block an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulation that would set the ground-level ozone standard to an unprecedented low level.“The EPA’s unceasing campaign to implement job-killing regulations has reached a new low, literally,” said Coats.“This proposed regulation would tighten required air quality compliance standards across the board while disregarding economic impact and the significant environmental investments already made by Hoosier businesses. I will not stand idly by while the Obama Administration issues job-killing regulations that will strangle Indiana’s economy.”Coats is an original cosponsor of the Clean Air, Strong Economies (CASE) Act, which would require the EPA to focus on the worst areas for air quality before lowering the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for ground-level ozone across the country. Introduced by Senator John Thune (R-N.D.), the legislation is cosponsored by Coats and eight other senators.last_img
