Rahall Introduces Bill to Stop EPA Carbon Rules
Tuesday, June 10, 2014 - 11:55 Updated 41 weeks ago From a Rep. Nick Rahall Release
Rahall and McKinley’s bill (H.R. 4813), which already has 68 cosponsors, would terminate the new rule for existing power plants, along with the proposed rule for future power plants. In addition, to prevent some sleight of hand maneuver by the EPA, the bill will aim to block the issuance of similar rules for at least the next 5 years without Congressional approval.
“I have fought with our coal miners for years, defending their jobs, promoting their health and safety, and protecting the pension and health care benefits they’ve worked so hard to earn. So when someone picks a fight with our coal miners, I put on the gloves. This may be one whale of a fight, but I am not slugging it out alone. Miners and their families, coal community residents, and businesses and families in West Virginia and throughout our country who rely on affordable energy have joined the fight and are making their voices heard,” said Rahall.
