AFPM Reacts to EPA's Risk Management Program Rule

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - December 21, 2016) - Statement by American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers' (AFPM) President Chet Thompson on EPA's Risk Management Program (RMP):

"This regulation is the definition of a midnight rule rushed to completion without adequate review and consideration, and should either be withdrawn or subjected to Congressional disapproval. Safety is a core value of AFPM's members, but EPA's revision to this rule will have no meaningful impact on safety and only increase costs. If advancing worker and public safety is the goal, we don't believe this rule does that."
