West Virginia Lawmakers To Fight EPA Carbon Rule

from news.yahoo.com: Two lawmakers from the coal-producing state of West Virginia said on Monday they plan legislation to stop rules to set caps on carbon emissions from U.S. power plants. Representative Nick Rahall, a Democrat, will work with Representative David McKinley, a Republican, with the goal of stopping the Environmental Protection Agency’s rule on existing power plants, which was announced on Monday, and an earlier proposal covering yet-to-be-built plants. “We will introduce bipartisan legislation that will prevent these disastrous new rules from wreaking havoc on our economy in West Virginia,” Rahall said.
