Quote – The American Steel Institute, Washington Dateline.

Additional money spent on secondary cleanup standards is not going to make that much difference in air quality, but it will hurt the American steel industry….In short, if it did not have to meet environmental requirements, the steel industry would have the capital to increase its annual shipments from 92 million tons in 1981 to 105 million tons in 1990….The need to meet future environmental requirements will reduce this expansion to 96 million tons.

The American Steel Institute attacks the implementation of the 1977 amendments. Washington Dateline, “Steel Industry Report Calls For Changes in Clean Air Act.”
