Today, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced it will change a crippling Obama-era regulation that threatens to shut down the U.S. glider kit industry. Without immediate action, the rule will devastate these small and medium-sized manufacturers, costing thousands of jobs in Tennessee alone. Glider kits are used to refurbish wrecked or unsafe highway tractors, and are often far more cost effective for the fleets of small business owners who are unable to buy all new vehicles.
