Small Business Review Panel

EPA is preparing to convene a Small Business Advocacy Review panel to provide input and recommendations for its upcoming proposed rule on Medium- and Heavy-Duty Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standard.  EPA is looking for small businesses that may be subject to the rule requirements to participate in the panel. Organizations representing small entities may also serve.  Nominations are requested by April 16, 2014.

Background: EPA is working jointly with the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) to propose coordinated fuel efficiency standards. EPA and NHTSA standards would reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fuel consumption through the application of advanced, cost-effective technologies.

Impacted: This action could affect manufacturers of a wide range of on-road vehicles, from semi-trucks and their trailers to the largest pickup trucks and vans, along with all types and sizes of work trucks and buses.

Advocacy Contact: David Rostker at 202.205.6533

The second presentation will be from a small business owner on the automatic IRA proposal and how it will improve retirement security.

Location: SBA headquarters, Eisenhower Conference Room, 409 3rd Street SW, 
Washington, DC, 20416.
