Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on House passage of H.R. 1734, the Improving Coal Combustion Residuals Regulation Act:

“Regulations from Washington continue to weigh down on businesses and energy producers across America, stifling economic growth and job creation. Rigid EPA regulations on coal ash can drive up energy prices at a time when Americans are finally feeling the benefits of cheaper energy. To balance our environmental interests with economic growth, this bill give states flexibility to implement the EPA standards on coal ash the best way for them.”
