AFS Provides Regulatory Reduction Comments to EPA

May 23, 2017

On May 15, 2017, AFS submitted comprehensive and detailed recommendations regarding the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) regulations to be considered for “repeal, replacement or modification” in accordance with President Trump’s Executive Order (EO) 13777. The EO requires federal agencies to establish Regulatory Review Task Forces to review existing regulations, focusing on the identification of those that are unnecessary, negatively impact jobs or are not justified on a cost-benefit basis, among other criteria.  

In its submission, AFS highlighted the regulatory burden the foundry industry bears and offers specific program modifications and solutions relating to air, solid waste, stormwater, and climate issues, as well as compliance and enforcement initiatives.
