Final EPA “Tailoring Rule”

First District Kansas Congressman Jerry Moran is speaking out against the Environmental Protection Agency’s issuance of its final “tailoring rule” which allows the EPA to begin regulating businesses that emit greenhouse gases in the U.S.

Moran said, “With the employment rate hovering at nearly 10%, this rule could not come at a worse time for the U.S. economy and the millions of Americans who are looking for work.” Adding, “These new regulations will increase the cost of electricity, motor fuel, building materials, and everyday consumer goods.”

Moran also questioned the legality of the new EPA rule saying, EPA’s rule is suspect. Its attempt to manipulate the terms of the Clean Air Act is an affront to the legislative process front and an abuse of executive power. EPA is attempting to disguise the negative effects of its regulation by rewriting the Clean Air Act.

Last December, Moran was the first member of Congress to introduce a disapproval resolution to invalidate EPA’s regulation of greenhouse gases with H. J. Resolution 66.

About Mike Schrant

Mike is one of those guys who has spent nearly a lifetime trying to figure out what he wants to do when he grows up. He has split time as a broadcaster and educator having first worked in radio in the early 1970’s while attending junior college. The two careers are directly connected because many of the 25 years as an educator were spent teaching broadcast journalism at the high school and college levels. Mike is married and has three adult children (no grandchildren yet) and enjoys sports, debating politics, gardening, landscaping-hauling rocks, and swapping stories with the "good old boys".
