A major Cap and Trade vote is pending for early next week. People will be visiting Sen. Webb’s office in Richmond on Friday morning at 11 am to ask him to support the Murkowski Resolution against the EPA’s backdoor Cap and Trade scheme. As you may or may not know, there has been an attempt by the EPA to try and institute parts of Cap & Trade pertaining to carbon dioxide regulation using the Clean Air Act, and therefore avoid the controversial vote in Congress.
Specifically, Murkowski’s amendment would prohibit the Environmental Protection Agency from spending money on regulating carbon dioxide from stationary sources under the Clean Air Act for a period of one year.
Murkowski said the regulation of carbon dioxide under the Clean Air Act is being used as a “thinly veiled threat” against the Senate to force action on climate legislation “regardless of where we are in what remains an ongoing and incredibly important debate.”
Murkowski’s amendment would simply remove the gun from the Senate’s head and allow time for a full and robust debate.
Webb is considered persuadable. Can you join us at 11am?
