Roskam Applauds House Passage of the Coal Residuals and Management Act


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Peter Roskam (IL-06), Chief Deputy Whip, issued the following statement after the House passed H.R. 2273 -- the Coal Residuals and Management Act -- a bill with bipartisan support that will allow coal combustion residuals to be used effectively and efficiently while protecting jobs:

"This bipartisan legislation is another commonsense solution to restore confidence in American businesses and workers. This is a regulatory solution that would protect jobs, keep electricity costs low, and keep construction material costs low. The construction and energy industries can't grow and expand with regulations as these excessive these.

"Americans are looking for answers on how we can turn this economy around, and excessive regulations from Washington are only adding to that frustration. It is initiatives like these that will provide for the kind of certainty and pro-growth environment needed to get businesses hiring again and move our economy in the right direction."
