On February 13, 2023, WLF urged the Biden Administration to withdraw a proposed rule that would amend the Federal Acquisition Regulation to require federal contractors to disclose greenhouse-gas emissions and climate-related financial risks and to set emissions-reduction targets. In formal comments, WLF argues that the mandated disclosures, if adopted, would far exceed the administration’s authority under the Procurement Act. Moreover, by compelling companies to speak publicly on a matter when they would prefer not to, the proposed rule unconstitutionally compels speech. For these reasons, WLF urges the Biden administration to withdraw the proposed rule.
