EPA Withdraws Fundamentally-Flawed Uranium Rule

WASHINGTON, D.C.The National Mining Association (NMA) released the following statement from Hal Quinn, President and CEO, regarding today’s announcement concerning the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) withdrawal of 40 CFR Part 192: Proposed Rulemaking.

“EPA’s action finalizes the withdrawal of a fundamentally flawed rule that was yet another hangover from the regulatory overreach of the prior administration. Like so many other proposals from that overzealous regulatory marathon, it failed to articulate a risk that justified the rulemaking, ignored the need for a realistic cost-benefit analysis, and underestimated compliance costs and impacts to small businesses.”
