Opposing GHG emissions standards

InfluenceMap Comment:

Advocating for policy makers to oppose specific GHG emissions standards. Supporting legal action to challenge emissions regulations. (Reuters, October 2013)

Extract from Source:

When the Obama administration unveiled new emission regulations for coal-fired power plants earlier this year, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) blasted the proposed rules, saying they would hurt its members "twice" - as energy users and as polluters "next in line" for such rules. Last Tuesday, a NAM-supported effort to challenge the rules cleared an important hurdle when the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear arguments in the case. The regulations, which critics call a "war on coal," will cost industry "tens of billions of dollars per year," according to the petition to the high court.

Opposing Clean Power Plan

InfluenceMap Comment:

Taking legal action against the clean power plan (E&E News, October 2015)

Extract from Source:

Affected industry groups, meanwhile, brought challenges on many fronts. Murray Energy Corp. and coal industry groups, which led previous efforts against the plan, filed suit Friday and also requested a stay of the rule. A coalition of 37 electric cooperatives filed their own suit, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers and 13 other business groups filed one more. "This plan restricts resources and reduces reliability, while setting a dangerous precedent for future regulation of other sectors," NAM general counsel Linda Kelly said in a statement. "Manufacturers can't sit by while this Administration makes it increasingly difficult to make things and create jobs in the United States, especially at a time when the regulatory weight borne by manufacturers is heavier than ever."

Opposing GHG emissions standards

InfluenceMap Comment:

Actively pushed for less stringent GHG emission standards as replacement to Clean Power Plan (E&E News, April 2018)

Extract from Source:

Those include plans to repeal President Obama's Clean Power Plan. "I think he is doing what he can to do the work that you would normally hope the agency would do, definitely on the Clean Power Plan specifically," said the industry source. Still, industry voices that are influential with the Trump administration have argued for regulatory clarity and opposed broadsides against the endangerment finding. That has hindered the success of Pruitt's allies outside the administration. Trade organizations like the National Association of Manufacturers and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce favor scaled-back power plant regulations rather than a tear-it-all-down strategy.

Opposing GHG emissions standards

InfluenceMap Comment:

Actively opposing GHG emissions standards (WMTV Madison, August 2015)

Extract from Source:

The debate over proposed EPA regulations continues. The president and CEO of the National Association of Manufacturers was in Madison on Monday. He talked about how emission regulations could cripple Wisconsin, but not all agree. [...] I want all of my children to have clean air and clean water, but we can't do it if we destroy the economy," says Jay Timmons, President and CEO of the National Association of Manufactures. The plan has not been met with open arms by groups like Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce and it's national counterpart, the National Association of Manufacturers. NAM estimates a $28 billion gross state product loss in Wisconsin from 2017 to 2040, with the loss of more than 23,000 jobs per year. [...] NAM has begun running TV ads across Wisconsin, opposing the new regulations. The group is working with lawmakers to freeze current standards until 85 percent of counties in the U.S. are in compliance with the current standards.

That doesn't mean that they're going to have a problem pulling back the Clean Power Plan. That's why we opposed the Clean Power Plan.

Opposing Clean Power Plan

InfluenceMap Comment:

Taking legal action against the clean power plan (Environmental Leader, October 2015)

Extract from Source:

The US Chamber of Commerce, which is suing to stop the carbon rules, said the Clean Power Plan is bad for business and represents a “massive executive power grab.” The Chamber has been joined in the lawsuit by the National Association of Manufacturers, [...] Calling the carbon regulation “unlawful,” the Manufacturers’ Center for Legal Action (NAM’s legal arm) said: “Manufacturers need abundant and reliable supplies of energy and reasonable and predictable policies that allow for continued investment and growth. This plan restricts resources and reduces reliability, while setting a dangerous precedent for future regulation of other sectors. Manufacturers can’t sit by while this Administration makes it increasingly difficult to make things and create jobs in the United States, especially at a time when the regulatory weight borne by manufacturers is heavier than ever.”
