Small Businesses Support Clean Energy Standards and Want Congressional Action on EPA Nominee

Publisher: Small Business Majority
Published: May 8, 2013

 
Introduction

National opinion polling shows small business owners believe government can play an important role in creating financial incentives that help small businesses take energy efficiency measures. As the drivers of the economy, small businesses want lawmakers to do what they were sent to Washington to do, including holding an up or down vote on nominees to lead government agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency.

Polling found small businesses support the president’s nomination to lead the EPA after learning about her qualifications. A strong 58% support nominee Gina McCarthy, who is currently the EPA’s air chief. McCarthy has more than three decades of public service at the local, state and federal levels, has worked for five Republican governors and has a reputation for working well with business and industry leaders. What’s more, small business owners support EPA action to limit carbon emissions that cause climate change and set standards for existing power plants, refineries and other major emitters.
