CEI Weekly: Senate Defends EPA Power Grab


>>Senate Defends EPA Power Grab; Votes Down Resolution

Today 53 members of the U.S. Senate went on record supporting economy-busting global warming regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency. The resolution, S.J.Res.26, introduced by Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) would have stopped the EPA from ‘enacting’ controversial global warming policies through the regulatory back door.  Specifically, it would have overturned EPA’s finding that greenhouse gas emissions endanger public health and welfare. The endangerment finding is both a trigger and precedent for sweeping policy changes never approved by Congress. Read more of what CEI has to say about the resolution:
