On July 20, 2018, WLF filed formal comments with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), urging the agency to adopt an agency-wide standard requiring quantitative cost-benefit analyses of pollution standards. WLF’s comments criticize EPA’s former experimentation with “social” costs and benefits, which led to arbitrary and excessive regulation. Instead, EPA should take an objective approach to cost-benefit analysis and consider both the environment and the economy. This approach allows agency decision-makers to quantify the net benefit of any proposed action, leading to more consistent and transparent regulations. WLF encourages EPA to adopt a standard that emphasizes the economic realities of regulation, counteracting the efforts of special-interest groups that push regulations based on biases without regard to potential consequences.
