19 Free Market Organizations Urge the Senate to Stop the EPA’s Power Grab

by William Yeatman on May 20, 2010

Nineteen free-market groups have signed a letter urging Senators to support S. J. Res. 26, the bipartisan legislation sponsored by Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) to overturn the legal force and effect of EPA’s endangerment finding with respect to greenhouse gases (GHGs).

If allowed to stand, the endangerment finding will trigger a regulatory cascade, making carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions “subject to regulation” under several Clean Air Act (CAA) programs. America could end up with a regulatory regime more costly than any climate bill or treaty the Senate has declined to pass or ratify, yet without the people’s representatives ever voting on it.

Under Senate rules, the vote must take place before June 7th, and it is expected to be very close.
