During testimony yesterday before the House Environment and the Economy Subcommittee, Mathy Stanislaus, EPA Assistant Administrator for Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response, told Rep. Cory Gardner (CO) that “we have not directly taken a look at jobs” when developing new environmental rules.

During this lengthy exchange, Stanislaus admitted to Gardner that although EPA has looked at the financial cost of compliance with new rules, the agency has not calculated the impact on jobs.
