Republicans in the House and Senate say they will file Congressional Review Act challenges the week of Oct. 26 to try to stop the Environmental Protection Agency’s plan to reduce carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Ed Whitfield, chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Energy and Power, who both are from the coal state of Kentucky, are promising to file the challenges which would disallow the EPA’s Clean Power Plan.
On Thursday, a House Science and Technology subcommittee will hold a hearing on the economic impacts of the rule.
The coal industry also will be watching the Hill on Tuesday when the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee holds a hearing on the Interior Department’s stream protection rule. Witnesses are: Assistant Interior Secretary Janice Schneider; West Virginia Environmental Protection Cabinet Secretary Randy Huffman; Wyoming Environmental Quality Director Todd Parfitt; and National Mining Association President Hal Quinn.
