Senate bill seeks to block EPA climate regulations

Recently a bill was introduced in the U.S. Senate to prohibit the EPA from regulating carbon dioxide emissions under the Clean Air Act. The National Center for Public Policy Research supports the Senate’s efforts to reign in the agency, and Dr. Bonner Cohen explains why: “The Obama EPA is trying to enact the cap, tax and trade scheme that Congress and the American people rejected. The Senate proposal would prevent EPA from usurping congressional authority. If EPA is allowed to proceed, U.S. investment could decline by up to fifteen percent, which is as large as the 2007 decline that preceded the current recession. Let’s keep our elected officials in charge, not the Obama EPA.”
