McConnell Wants Vote on Blocking EPA Climate Regulations

Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) “moved Tuesday to force a political showdown over Environmental Protection Agency climate change regulations on the floor of the Senate,” The Hill reports.

McConnell introduced an amendment to a small business bill that would permanently block the EPA from regulating greenhouse gas emissions from stationary sources like power plants and refineries.

The small business bill McConnell seeks to amend is the SBIR and STTR Reauthorization Act (S. 493). It’s currently being debated by the Senate.
