USA REPUBLICANS TO DELAY OBAMA'S NEW POWER PLANT REGULATIONS

House Republicans are preparing a bill that would delay implementation of the Obama administration's climate rule for power plants and let state governors veto compliance plans. Rep. Ed Whitfield (R-Ky.), chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee's panel on energy and power, unveiled the draft legislation Monday that he worked on with Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.), the full committee chairman, and other members. The draft bill would delay the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) rule until all court challenges are over and let governors block any plans to implement the regulation - whether from the state or imposed by the EPA - if they think it would significantly increase electricity rates or harm reliability. --Timothy Cama, The Hill, 23 March 2015 (http://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/236656-house-gop-seeks-to-delay-epa-climate-rule-gives-states-vetoes)

Sounds like sane policy. And that's a refreshing change of pace.
