Sen. Brown: Don't Let EPA Regulate Greenhouse Gas

Thursday, 10 Jun 2010 03:44 PM


U.S. Sen. Scott Brown is backing a resolution to block the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse gases from automobiles and industrial facilities.

Brown said he plans to vote for the proposal by Alaska Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski that seeks to undo a finding that allowed the federal environmental agency to regulate the gases.

The resolution is up for a vote Thursday. Sen. John Kerry, a Democrat, opposes it.

Brown said he disagrees that giving the EPA the ability to regulate the emissions will help solve the country's energy problems.

The Massachusetts Republican called the carbon dioxide regulations "restrictive and damaging" and said they will drive up energy prices and make it harder for businesses to create new jobs.

The White House issued a veto threat if the resolution is passed.
