Cement Industry Advocates For Environmental Regulatory Relief

EPA regulations impacting the cement industry could force the closure of 18 of the nearly 100 US cement plants and cost 4,000 manufacturing jobs, according to congressional testimony by Dan Harrington, president and CEO of Lehigh Hanson, Inc., and former chair of the Portland Cement Association. PCA supports the “Cement Sector Regulatory Relief Act of 2011” (H.R. 268), which, they say, will enable the plants to continue to operate.
