Manchin Sponsors Bill to Block EPA Climate Rules

Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), a “vocal critic of the Environmental Protection Agency, has signed on as a co-sponsor of Republican legislation to permanently block the agency’s climate rules,” The Hill reports.

The addition of Manchin, who is up for re-election in 2012, as a co-sponsor means that the authors of the bill have been able to get at least some Democratic support in both the House and the Senate. Forty-three Senate Republicans sponsored the bill.
