The Impacts of Ozone Regulations on Jobs in Our Community
-Tightening ozone standards could increase costs to the American public, reduce America’s ability to compete internationally, and threaten American jobs.
-The recent study by NERA Economic Consulting found that a stricter ozone regulation could reduce U.S. GDP by $270 billion per year and $3.4 trillion from 2017 to 2040 and result in 2.9 million fewer jobs or job equivalents per year on average through 2040.
