Democrat seeks to throttle EPA

Congressman Earl Pomeroy [D-ND] today announced introduction of H.R. 4396, the Save Our Energy Jobs Act, legislation which would prohibit the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from regulating greenhouse gases. This legislation has been introduced in response to a recent EPA announcement that it was moving forward on new rules to regulate greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act. This action, if not prevented, could dramatically increase energy rates as well as end up costing North Dakota jobs.

That is why I introduced the Save Our Energy Jobs Act which would stop the EPA from moving forward with its proposal,” said Congressman Pomeroy. “I am not about to let some Washington bureaucrat dictate new public policy that will raise our electricity rates and put at risk the thousands of coal-related jobs in our state.””  “Pomeroy Announces Introduction of Legislation to Prohibit EPA Regulation of Greenhouse Gases
