McConnell Plans Senate Effort To Preempt EPA Carbon Crackdown

by Wochit 0:44 mins

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday introduced a bill that would try to block newly proposed government regulations that seek to curb carbon emissions from U.S. power plants. McConnell, a Republican who represents Kentucky - a major coal-producing state which is also reliant on coal for electricity generation - faces a tight re-election battle in November's elections and has been campaigning on a promise to protect the state's ailing coal sector. The EPA rules would put the United States on a course to reduce overall U.S. power plant emissions 30 percent below 2005 levels by 2030, but each state will have its own target.
