First Senate Attack on EPA Comes from Barrasso of Wyoming
And here it is - the first Senate attack on the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Clean Air Act authority to protect public health and the environmental from global warming pollution just hit in the Senate. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) introduced the misleadingly named "Defending America's Affordable Energy and Jobs Act."
This bill takes Senator Jay Rockefeller's (D-WV) two year delay idea a step further by banning EPA carbon pollution standards altogether (unless granted permission by Congress).
Stay tuned - we'll have more on this as it develops.
