Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski vowed Tuesday to strip the Environmental Protection Agency of its authority to impose new limits on the emission of greenhouse gases.
The Senate on Thursday is expected vote on a “resolution of disapproval” by Murkowski that would prevent the EPA from further regulating air pollution from vehicles and industrial facilities.
Murkowski has the bipartisan support of 40 other senators, who may disagree with each other on the scientific impact of greenhouse gases, but who all agree that such regulations should be authorized by Congress, not an executive agency.
“The EPA intends to take control of climate policy, take it away from the Congress,” Murkowski said at a press conference with eleven of her fellow Republican senators. “And I think those that are looking at this from the perspective of separate but equal branches of government look at this and say that this is absolutely unacceptable.”
