The House voted largely along party lines Dec. 1 to kill off two regulations that are the centerpieces of President Barack Obama’s efforts to combat climate change. One resolution (S.J. Res. 24) would kill off the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan, which seeks to curb carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants, while the other (S.J. Res. 23) goes after emissions from new and modified power plants. Obama plans to veto both measures, and both chambers appear well short of the margins needed to override that action.
But not all Democrats and Republicans voted with their parties to undermine the president’s actions on climate change. Here are the dissenters:
Four Moderate Democrats Voted to Kill Both Regulations: The moderate Democrats who supported killing off both EPA rules are Reps. Brad Ashford (Neb.), Sanford Bishop (Ga.), Henry Cuellar (Texas) and Collin Peterson (Minn.).
Just Two Republicans Bucked Their Party by Refusing to Nullify the Clean Power Plan: Reps. Richard Hanna (N.Y.) and Robert Dold (Ill.) voted against killing off the carbon dioxide limits for the nation’s fleet of existing powers plants.
Ten House Republicans Did Not Support Blocking the New Plant Rule: All 10 Republicans previously backed a House resolution urging action on climate change. They are Reps. Ryan Costello (Pa.), Carlos Curbelo (Fla.), Dold, Michael Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Chris Gibson (N.Y.), Hanna, John Katko (N.Y.), Frank LoBiondo (N.J.), Pat Meehan (Pa.) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (Fla.).
