Alaskan Native News reports:
Alaska’s Senator Lisa Murkowski came out in opposition of the new proposed regulations in a released statement today. “I’m very disappointed by this latest rulemaking from the EPA,” Murkowski said.
“Despite opposition, the administration has charged ahead with command-and-control regulations that will drive up energy costs for all Americans. And today we find that they are even willing to mandate the use of technologies that don’t exist on a commercial scale. This is the wrong way to advance our energy and environmental objectives. “The administration does not have the ability to will technologies into existence by sheer force of the rules it imposes on American energy producers. Instead, a longer-term commitment to basic, scientific research is required for the technological breakthroughs that we all seek and support.
