EPA Victory?

The EPA was targeted by a block with the legislation we talked about a couple of days ago. Senator Lisa Markowski and Jay Rockefeller were the point people in the attempt to stop EPA from putting on restrictions without the consent of Congress.
(Strangely, the first article I read mentioning Marsha Blackburn from Tennessee was not mentioned as a major player.)

Along with Rockefeller, Landrieu, Bayh, Pryor, Ben Nelson and Blanche Lincoln voted with the Republicans. It wasn't enough, however, and the writer opined that it must have taken some intense pressure from the White House to win the no vote from Jim Webb of Virginia who is up again in 2012 and it's already looking tough for him.

Failure of the resolution means the larger liberal group of supporters will keep chasing a climate bill. Hopefully it can be delayed and after November will be a moot point.

Have a great weekend-
God bless.........
