House votes to stop the EPA’s Clean Power Plan

The White House said, on Tuesday, that they would veto the bill to halt the Clean Power Plan , saying that the act would undermine the potential protections of the Clean Air Act and stop the United States’ progress in reducing carbon pollution. Legislators from the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s (headed by manmade climate change-denier Fred Upton) Subcommittee on Energy and Power, including Rep. Ed Whitfield (R-KY); Rep. Sanford Bishop (D-GA); Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-VA) and Rep. Collin Peterson (D-MN) introduced the law in March. The bill seeks to extend the rule’s compliance dates pending litigation. It also includes a “safe harbor” for states to protect ratepayers, saying that no state must implement the plan if the state’s governor or other state officials decide that the bill would have negative effects on the state’s electricity system or the ratepayers.
