Senators Want to Bar E.P.A. Greenhouse Gas Limits
By JOHN M. BRODER 
 WASHINGTON — In a direct challenge to theEnvironmental Protection Agency ’s authority,Senator Lisa Murkowski, Republican of Alaska, introduced a resolution on Thursday toprevent the agency from taking any action to regulate carbon dioxide and other climate-altering gases.Ms. Murkowski, joined by 35 Republicans and three conservative Democrats, proposed touse the Congressional Review Act to strip the agency of the power to limit emissions of greenhouse gases under theClean Air Act. TheSupreme Courtgave the agency legal authority to regulate such emissions in a landmark 2007 ruling.The agency has declared carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases to be a threat to humanhealth and the environment and is moving to write regulations to restrict emissions from vehicles, power plants and other major sources. The action could impose significant costs onthe economy but would also rein in production of the heat-trapping gases that mostscientists link to worrisome changes in the global climate.“Make no mistake,” Ms. Murkowski said in a floor statement, “if Congress allows this tohappen there will be severe consequences.” She said businesses would be forced to close ormove overseas, domestic energy production would be curtailed, housing would becomemore expensive and agricultural costs would rise.Her resolution requires a majority vote in the Senate, a remote possibility because of thestrong opposition of the Democratic leader, SenatorHarry Reidof Nevada, and most otherDemocrats. It faces even longer odds in the House. And then it would require the signatureof President Obama, who is all but certain to veto it because it would rob him of a criticalregulatory tool.
