McKinley Votes to Protect Jobs, Affordable Electricity
Rep. David McKinley, R-W.Va. (1st CD), issued the following news release:
Today, the House of Representatives voted to protect access to affordable electricity by providing an alternative to the EPA’s excessive regulations on power plants. Rep. David B. McKinley (R-WV) is an original co-sponsor of the legislation.
The House adopted two of Rep. McKinley’s amendments to the bill designed to reign in EPA overregulation by adding stakeholders with whom the EPA should consult before submitting its report to Congress. In addition, they require the EPA to look at the domestic and global economic impact of rules or guidelines before making more changes.
“We’ve heard from numerous business leaders that tell us that excessive regulations are holding back job growth,” said Rep. McKinley. “We need to create an economic environment where businesses feel confident about their future in this uncertain economy as the Obama Administration continues to bypass Congress with its ever-changing government regulations.”
