The House budget bill would cut about $3 billion from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) operating budget, about 29% of the agency's overall budget. The bill would prevent the EPA from implementing, administering or enforcing the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) on the Portland cement industry.
