Congressman Rick Berg is coming to the aid of small businesses, schools, farms and electric co-ops. Berg introduced the Generator Regulatory Relief Act at Cass County Electric Cooperative this afternoon. The EPA is enforcing stricter pollution policies starting in 2013. Those policies would force organizations to buy federally regulated equipment. The Relief Act would exempt current generators used for emergency use or high demand from expensive retrofits.

Representative Rick Berg – (R) North Dakota: “It's to empower our states so we can make more decisions at the local level and not be dependent on the federal level. It's to grow the economy and it's to stop the over regulatory environment.”

Berg says strict regulations are already in place for generators currently being used.
