AFP-MN Applauds Senate for Reigning in Regulatory Overreach

May 1, 2018 by AFP

Grassroots group supports action to nullify and replace outdated sulfate standard

St. Paul, MN – Americans for Prosperity-Minnesota (AFP-MN) on Monday applauded Senators for passing HF3280, a bill that would reset the process of rewriting the Pollution Control Agency’s (PCA’s) outdated sulfate standard. The PCA’s proposed rewrite would impose severe costs on Minnesota businesses and workers and has twice been rejected by the court. The Minnesota House passed the bill last week.

AFP-MN released a key vote alert in support of HF3280.

“Today’s vote ensures legislators are no longer cut out of the process of creating and enforcing billions of dollars in regulation on Minnesota communities and businesses. Minnesotans cannot afford for bureaucrats to arbitrarily implement uncertain or inaccurate regulatory standards,” said Jason Flohrs, AFP-MN State Director. “We urge the Legislature and Governor to finalize this bill to ensure the livelihoods of thousands of Minnesotans are not jeopardized and sign this common-sense proposal.”

Because the Senate added an amendment to the bill, HF3280 now goes back to the House, which will either vote to concur with the changes or will appoint a conference committee to reconcile the differences.
