A new rule by the Environmental Protection Agency that would force businesses to pay more for their air quality standards has many small businesses worried.
The rule will apply to the Clean Air Act and is expected to cost the US economy about $50 billion in lost revenue.
It is a huge blow to small businesses and small businesses in general.
However, some business owners are hopeful that the rule will actually benefit them.
The regulation is expected by the end of this month, and will likely have a positive impact on the small business sector, said Mike Davis, president of the American Chamber of Commerce’s Washington, DC, chapter.
Davis said that the new rule would not have an impact on small businesses who are still buying in bulk from companies like UPS or FedEx.
Small businesses have been getting hit by a lack of air quality regulations in recent years, which is largely due to the implementation of a new rule in 2014 that was a massive victory for small businesses.
The EPA has yet to finalize the rule, but the Trump administration has already released an analysis showing that the rules would actually hurt the industry.
Davis and other small business owners in the Washington, D.C., area, have already been lobbying hard for the rule to be scrapped.
The new rule will likely hurt small business with many businesses saying that they will be forced to make costly upgrades to comply with the rule.
Davis says that his own business has been losing a lot of money on the air quality rule, and is currently facing the loss of millions in revenue due to this rule.
The agency is still working to finalise the rule and will release more information about the rule at the end the month, Davis said.
“The new rule has hurt many small business in the past, and we have a plan to fix it,” Davis said, pointing to the new rules efforts in 2016 and in 2018, where the agency had promised to fix the rule within a year.
“This new rule is going up against a lot bigger, and much more significant issues.
The air quality issue has really hit us hard in the last few years, and I think we are going to see a lot more losses in the future.”
It’s not just small businesses that are struggling to meet their air pollution standards, but also the federal government.
The US Department of Energy, the Environmental Defense Fund, and other groups have also been lobbying to repeal the rule since its initial release.
The federal government is already struggling to keep up with the pace of its greenhouse gas emissions, according to a report from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).
The agency has estimated that the federal budget would be reduced by more than $8 trillion by 2035 if it doesn’t fully meet the climate change goals.
The Congressional Budget office estimates that repealing the Clean Power Plan would cost $1.2 trillion in the first year alone.
