WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Kit Bond’s attempt to protect American families and workers from job-killing Obama administration regulations was blocked by Senate Democrats siding with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) bureaucrats rather than struggling American families, farmers, and workers.
“If the Democrats are serious about protecting jobs they would have sided with the American people, rather than EPA bureaucrats,” said Bond. “It’s disappointing that Democrats again blocked bipartisan action to protect the American people from the backdoor national energy tax coming in the form of new job-killing carbon regulations from EPA,” said Bond.
Tonight, Bond proposed that the Senate act without further delay to consider and pass S. 3072, Senator Rockefeller’s bill, to delay for 2 years EPA actions to develop or implement new carbon regulations. Unfortunately, Senate Democrats blocked Bond’s effort.
