Grothman On EPA Standards
Congressman Glenn Grothman says it is important to business and the economy that EPA regulations don’t get too strict. He says it is important to have clean water and clean air, but EPA guidelines shouldn’t be so strict that there is just a marginal or insignificant benefit. He says if the EPA makes restrictions on lead in drinking water too strict it will cost municipalities a fortune to comply with those stricter standards. He says there will always be something in the water or the air, but it shouldn’t become wildly expensive to keep up with EPA standards if a bureaucrat in Washington lowers the standards again. He says standards for air and water already make them purer than they were 50 or 60 years ago. The City of Fond du Lac recently updated a City ordinance to deal with lead pipe water services to homes.
