AGC Provides Regulatory Reduction Suggestions to EPA

Per the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) request, AGC provided 30 pages of comprehensive and detailed recommendations for EPA’s regulatory evaluation in line with recent executive orders and presidential initiatives. In its submissions, AGC highlights the regulatory burden the construction industry bears and offers specific program modifications and solutions relating to water issues, oil spills prevention and preparedness, air and climate issues, lead-based paint issues, contaminated sites and liability, as well as compliance and enforcement initiatives. 

With tens of thousands of new federal regulations, interpretive guidance and agency policy issued over the last eight years, there is a target rich environment for unwinding unnecessary, ineffective, unworkable and unduly costly (low benefit) regulations. The greatest challenge the Trump administration will face is prioritizing its efforts to return reason to the regulatory scheme.
