ABI testifies at ARRC in support of antidegradation rule

July 14, 2016

On Tuesday, ABI public policy director Jessica Harder spoke in favor of antidegradation rule changes at the Administrative Rules Review Committee ()ARRC) meeting, to clarify the antidegradation procedure after a court decision made the rule unclear and potentially burdensome and expensive for members. Environmental groups spoke in opposition to the changes. No action was taken on the rule, so it will continue to move forward through the rulemaking process.
