Senate anti-EPA Amendments Scheduled for Wednesday

30 Mar 2011  |   Daniel Jacobs

Legislation designed to prevent the EPA from safeguarding the air we breathe will face Senate votes tomorrow, according to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Today on the Senate floor Reid stated, "I think we're at a point where in the morning, we can vote on the McConnell amendment dealing with the EPA and a couple of other amendments relating to EPA to get rid of that issue one way or another."

The McConnell amendment, introduced by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and authored by Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK) would block the Environmental Protection Agency from protecting our air from dirty polluters.

The other additional anti-EPA amendments include one proposed by Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV), which would hamper the EPA from safeguarding our air for two years, and another amendment proposed by Senator Max Baucus (D-MT), which would allow smaller polluters to continue poisoning the air we breathe.
