2d Session

H. RES. 606

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

March 29, 2012

(for himself, Mr. Rogers of Kentucky, Mr. Jordan, Mr. Johnson of Ohio, Mr. Latta, and Mr. McCaul) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Energy and Commerce

RESOLUTION

Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives regarding the notice signed by the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency Lisa Jackson on March 27, 2012, entitled Standards of Performance for Greenhouse Gas Emissions for New Stationary Sources: Electric Utility Generating Units.

That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that—

(1)

Americans rely on coal and the inexpensive energy it provides for nearly half of our energy needs;

(2)

the proposed rule entitled Standards of Performance for Greenhouse Gas Emissions for New Stationary Sources: Electric Utility Generating Units will likely lead to increased energy costs for consumers, small business owners, and manufacturers which would—

(A)

result in the loss of American jobs;

(B)

make American businesses less competitive; and

(C)

damage our Nation’s economic recovery; and

(3)

the Environmental Protection Agency should not be setting energy policy for the Nation with environmental regulations that for all practical purposes dictate fuel choices for new power plants.
