|Subject||Banning is not the answer...|
I have worked at/around a chrome plating shop for 26 years, you are looking to take the quick and easy road and just kill off an industry. The industry has stated time, and time again that we are willing and able to discuss and work through tighter regulations and rules. This is the ideal way forward. The complete ban on chrome plating in any time frame is not practical. We as an industry produce less than 1% of all hex chrome emissions, who/what/where are the 99%? What are you doing about limiting the excess emissions from all the bigger places and companies and names? By attacking the smallest group, you will be shutting down small businesses in the state, and forcing jobs out of state - because people will not suddenly stop wanting chrome, they will just have to get it from other places (who most likely have lesser emissions standards and thus affect even more people). Please consider pushing back any rules or voting, unless all the research is complete, until the actual facts are verified and we can all move forward together and not leave thousands of people without jobs.
