Thursday, February 8, 2024

WASHINGTON, Feb. 8, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- American Chemistry Council (ACC) President and CEO Chris Jahn today sent a letter to President Biden requesting he create an Interagency Policy Committee (IPC). Led by the Director of the White House National Economic Council, the intent of the IPC is to coordinate an economic impact analysis of regulations on the chemical industry and the broader economy. The IPC would require all cabinet departments to evaluate the regulatory proposals by other federal agencies specifically to identify their impact on the ability and speed of administering the programs of those federal departments, especially the new responsibilities associated with implementing the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, the Inflation Reduction Act, and the CHIPS and Science Act.

Key Points: 
  • Require all Cabinet Departments to Identify Impact of Proposed Regulations on IIJA, IRA, CHIPS and Science Act

  • The total number of regulations that apply to the chemical manufacturing industry has doubled in the past 20 years.
  • In short, we risk offshoring of American innovation—good American jobs—if this current regulatory environment is allowed to continue."
