NMMA opposes EPA's emissions ruling

Earlier this week, Environmental Protection Agency administrator Lisa Jackson announced that carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions pose a danger to the public, a move that could lead to a nationwide carbon cap regulation if Congress fails to enact climate legislation before the end of 2010, the National Marine Manufacturers Association reports.

Jackson indicated that legislation is still the best way to tackle greenhouse gas emissions, but that EPA regulatory action can complement such legislation.

The NMMA, like virtually every industry group, strongly opposed an endangerment finding by EPA and greenhouse gas regulation under the Clean Air Act in formal comments late last year.

The NMMA has been able to secure language in both the House and Senate ensuring any new recreational marine engine and vessel regulations that may be promulgated by EPA under the climate change bill would be done within the non-road category.
