A sincere thanks to Senator Inhofe (R-Okla) for getting after the EPA who have been overstepping their bounds and usurping the authority of Congress. Per the New York Times, who don’t appear too happy……..
The Senate’s most vocal climate change skeptic has taken a key role in crafting two bills to be introduced next week that would both permanently stop U.S. EPA from regulating greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act.
Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), who famously called climate change the “greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,” will unveil a bill with House Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.) that would strip EPA of its authority to limit carbon emissions from power plants, refineries and other stationary sources.
At the same time, he will be a “first co-sponsor” of a much broader bill that would bar the federal government from regulating greenhouse gas emissions under any existing environmental law. That measure will be introduced Monday by Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), who serves on the Environment and Public Works Committee, on which Inhofe is the ranking Republican.
I hope all the Republicans join in and vote for these two much-needed bills. This will be a good step in stopping onerous regulations that scare business away from the United States and costs jobs.
Thank you Senators!
