The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) are close to finalizing their proposed rule redefining "waters of the U.S." and making many more areas subject to federal control. More federal control would require nearly all construction sites to obtain often unnecessary Clean Water Act permits.

MBI members would agree that compliance with environmental regulations can be very costly, while falling out of compliance can be even more expensive.  Therefore, MBI works to educate members on environmental regulatory issues and continues to advocate at the state and local levels for common-sense environmental laws and ordinances. 

MBI works to reach common ground in which environmental regulations and business can co-exist.  The construction industry agrees that over-burdensome regulatory authority stymies growth opportunities and hinders the development of creative measures that will foster sustainable construction.
