Murkowski’s EPA Rule Resolution Receives Vote This Week

The Senate “returns to a plate of leftovers next week, but action on Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s climate change amendment could spice up the floor debate Thursday,” Roll Call reports.

The Alaska Republican’s proposal rolling back Environmental Protection Agency authority to regulate greenhouse gases comes as Democrats renew their push to pass climate change legislation following the Gulf Coast oil spill.

A final vote on Murkowski’s measure is expected Thursday evening, and with 41 co-sponsors to the resolution, aides predict it will easily clear the 51-vote threshold for passage.
