EPA Continues Strong Push to Regulate Greenhouse Gases


The Environmental Protection Agency continues its push to regulate greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act, while opposition in Congress to the plan continues to ramp up.

Speaking at the National Press Club in Washington on Monday, Lisa Jackson, EPA administrator, said delaying action on climate change regulations would be bad for the economy. Jackson criticized efforts by Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and others to stop EPA from regulating greenhouse gases. Jackson said Congress should focus on drafting a climate bill, instead of suspending the rules.

“I really think the energy of the Senate on this issue would be wonderful if it would be put toward new legislation to do something,” she said.

AFBF strongly supports legislation introduced by Murkowski and other members of Congress to stop EPA from regulating greenhouse gases without congressional approval.
