Senator Mitch McConnell plans to force a vote on EPA carbon regulations

Senator Mitch McConnell on Thursday said he plans to force a vote to stop new EPA regulations aimed at cutting carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants. McConnell said he, along with 40 other Republicans will file a resolution of disapproval against the proposed EPA rule. The EPA published it's rule on the new performance standards for power plants-pushing for the facilities to be built with carbon-capture technology-last week in the Federal Register. McConnell will seek to stop the regulations through the Review Act-a rarely used legislative tool that allows Congress to block regulations from the executive branch.
