Smart regulations help protect public health and the environment, but ineffective, unnecessary regulations cost jobs, undercut growth and undermine competitiveness.
Systematic flaws in the regulatory framework result in smaller paychecks for regular Americans, higher consumer bills and lost jobs.
Commonsense reforms to improve the transparency, accountability and objectivity of regulations would enable more effective enforcement, maximize public health and welfare, and minimize economic costs.
ExxonMobil supports smart regulations that are effective, equitable, and evidence-based rules that ultimately benefit society. Their implementation should be consistent and transparent, and not inappropriately impact jobs, growth or competitiveness.
We support regulatory process improvements to simplify rules, increase transparency and streamline oversight and enforcement. Risk assessments, cost-benefit analyses and peer reviews should be part of any smart environmental regulation.
