Madison, Wis. – Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin issued the following statement applauding Attorney General Brad Schimel’s efforts to join multiple other states in challenging the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s new ozone emissions standard.

As the state with the most manufacturing jobs per capita, Wisconsin will be hit hard with environmental compliance costs and substantial increases in energy prices.  Additionally, EPA’s rule will make opening new manufacturing facilities or expanding existing facilities in SE Wisconsin difficult, if not impossible.

State Director Eric Bott issued the following statement in response to the Department of Justice’s motion to intervene in the ozone case:

“We can all expect to pay more to drive our cars, heat our homes, and keep the lights on under EPA’s flawed ozone rule,” said Eric Bott, State Director of Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin. “If EPA is successful, Wisconsin could lose thousands of family supporting manufacturing jobs.  AFP commends Attorney General Schimel for fighting to protect Wisconsin workers and families from EPA’s latest assault on America’s economy.”
