Testifying on 09.03.2011 before the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Regulations Reform, Aris Papadopoulos (Fig.), CEO of Titan America and chair of the Portland Cement Association (PCA), called for Congress to take immediate action to end the unprecedented regulatory assault against the cement industry that puts millions of American jobs in jeopardy. Led by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), chair of the Subcommittee on Regulatory Affairs, Stimulus Oversight and Government Spending, the hearings sought to assess the cumulative impact of regulations on U.S. manu-facturers. “Immediate action is needed to rescind these regulations before they prolong or worsen the harm…” he testified. In addition to Papadopoulos, the Subcommittee heard testimony from the paper, chemistry, forged metals and brick industries.
