Rules and regulatory compliance already got ya down? Well, another rule’s comin’…(check out the video above for a preview.)

The final rule of EPA’s Clean Power Plan, set to go into effect mid-summer 2015, will likely have significant financial implications for US manufacturers. The potential cost, supported by several independent third-party studies, could be far below the original estimates put forth by the EPA. This has led to great cause for concern among domestic manufacturers as they already struggle to compete with international companies who, in many cases, receive heavily subsidized energy.
