While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    REPUBLICANS WANT TO DEFUND/BLOCK EPA EMISSIONS REGS

    Republicans to Try to Block Funds for EPA Emissions Rules

    Derek Wallbank, June 13, 2014 (Bloomberg News)

    The House Appropriations Committee will attempt to block implementation funding for the newly proposed EPA emissions regulations, according to senior members of the Appropriations Committee…and it is possible they will attempt to do so by blocking funding for the Interior Department and/or the EPA…Such a floor fight in the Republican-controlled House could bring media attention to the conservative opposition with such a battle but any effort to legislate against the EPA rule would fail in the Democrat-controlled Senate…In hopes of forcing individual House and Senate members onto the record specifically about the EPA regulations, Republicans may add the defunding of Interior and EPA as an amendment to the appropriations bill, putting coal-state House and Senate Democrats on the spot ahead of this November’s midterm elections...Also, H.R. 4850 would block the regulations from taking effect unless other federal agencies certify they won’t cost jobs or increase electricity prices and H.R. 4813 would block the regulations and bar EPA from proposing anything similar for at least five year without Congressional approval. click here for more
