Statement of Rob Portman on Senator Murkowski's Resolution to Block EPA Power Grab

Press Release

Location: Unknown

U.S. Senate candidate Rob Portman issued the following statement today regarding the impending Senate vote on Senator Lisa Murkowski's (R-Alaska) resolution that would restrict the ability of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to regulate greenhouse gases:
"Just like they did with the healthcare bill, Democrats in Washington are attempting an end-run around the American people. There is still a better way to protect the environment and get us away from our dependence on foreign oil without increasing taxes and furthering burdening a struggling economy. I hope Congress continues its work to pass meaningful energy legislation, but resists the EPA's attempted power grab and fights efforts to impose job-killing climate regulations harmful to Ohio workers and Ohio families."
