Marty Durbin, president of the U.S. Chamber's Global Energy Institute, issued the following statement today regarding the publication of regulations to implement provisions of the American Innovation and Manufacturing Act of 2020:

"The U.S. Chamber is pleased that EPA has advanced the phasedown of HFCs by publishing the proposed AIM Act allocation rule. The effort to reduce HFCs will not only create new jobs for American manufacturers, but will also dramatically reduce a significant source of emissions that contribute to climate change. We look forward to working with EPA as the agency moves forward with the development of the rule. It is an important next step in continuing American leadership in this sector and supporting efforts to address the climate challenge."
