Job Creators Network Urges Biden Council To Withdraw Duplicative, Illegal Regulations

Today, the Job Creators Network Foundation and Boyden Gray & Associates called on the Biden Administration to withdraw illegal and burdensome proposed federal acquisition regulations. These regulations would require federal contractors to catalog and disclose their greenhouse gas emissions.

Elaine Parker, President of the Job Creators Network Foundation, released the following statement: 

“The proposed regulations that the Department of Defense and other agencies that procure goods from private companies are considering are not only illegal they also are duplicative of SEC’s devastating new rule that requires all public companies to report their greenhouse gas emissions and also the ‘climate risks’ faced by their suppliers. Small businesses are already drowning in red tape. They will only further sink under the weight of a patchwork of regulations from different agencies all requiring them to make speculative disclosures about the ‘climate risks’ they face. The Biden Administration should immediately withdraw its federal acquisition regulation on climate disclosure.”
