- EPA Withdraws Fundamentally-Flawed Uranium Rule
October 19, 2018
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.”
