Lamar Alexander: How To Regulate Greenhouse Gases Up To Congress, Not EPA

U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander Tuesday released the following statement on the Environmental Protection Agency’s issuance of a rule regulating greenhouse gas emissions from new power plants:

We have the technology and know-how to remove nitrogen oxide, sulfur dioxide, and mercury from coal plant emissions and we should do it—we don’t have a good way to do remove carbon dioxide from coal. Determining how to regulate carbon dioxide is the job of Congress, not the EPA.
