C.

Conclusion is trying to say that our nation's competitive edge will diminish if we have this new law enacted.

C states that other nations with these regulations enacted are some of the most competitive out there.

A,B, D and E do not touch upon the conclusion so the nation's competitiveness might still diminish.
