Senate Fails to Stop the EPA

By Adam Bitely –

The U.S. Senate failed to defend freedom and liberty today when it denied passage to Lisa Murkowski’s resolution to reign in the EPA. The Senate voted 53-47 to allow the EPA to run free and be released from accountability of elected politicians.

ALG President Bill Wilson had this to say about the failure in the Senate:

“The Senate has just voted to affirm that the EPA should be able to arbitrarily set the nation’s energy policy by imposing unilateral restrictions on carbon emissions without any vote at all in Congress.  This is a vote that will assuredly lead to higher energy prices, lost jobs, lost business, and the tyrannical imposition of a radical, environmentalist agenda upon the American people.”
