Inhofe Vows to Keep Fighting to Hold EPA Accountable
Washington, DC - Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, today said following the Senate vote on SJR 37 that the effort behind his resolution provided the opportunity for those who will be most severely impacted by the Obama-EPA’s war on coal to have their voices heard in the Senate - and to see which Senators are listening. Senator Inhofe added that as the Senate debated his resolution over the past few months, EPA’s radical agenda was thoroughly exposed, and he vowed that he will continue fighting to put a stop to President Obama’s war on oil, natural gas, and coal. Senator Inhofe’s resolution would have prevented the Obama-EPA from implementing its Utility MACT rule - one of the most expensive regulations in history - and sent EPA back to the drawing board to craft a more workable rule. Today 46 Senators voted in favor of the measure. Today 46 Senators voted in favor of the measure; it needed 50 votes to pass.
