The article focuses on the impact of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) regulations on automotive refinishing business. The EPA is looking at ways to reduce emissions from the automotive refinishing process. Distributors and retailers are concerned over the impact to their customer base. The regulation of the EPA would potentially restrict paint sales to those who are not certified users. A study conducted in Pennsylvania revealed that point of sale controls do, in fact, reduce harmful emissions.
