From the Opening Statement of Harley Rouda: "[T]he Subcommittee on Environment will examine the Trump administration's efforts to undermine the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards, also known at the MATS rule, by changing the calculation of the rule's benefits and concluding that it is no longer appropriate and necessary under the Clean Air Act. Our goal here today is to examine how the Environmental Protection Agency's efforts to undermine the MATS rule is yet another example of this administration's prioritizing the profits of corporate polluters over Americans' health and safety." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Heather McTeer Toney, Katie Huffling, Many M. Gunasekara, and Mitchell C. Hescox.
