House GOP Moves to Block EPA Rules on Power Plants

(AP)

In a long-expected skirmish, House Republicans are moving to block President Barack Obama's plan to limit carbon pollution from new power plants.

A bill targeting the power plant rule is slated for a vote on the House floor Thursday as GOP lawmakers fight back against what they call the Obama administration's "war on coal." Obama's proposal, a key part of his plan to fight climate change, would set the first national limits on heat-trapping pollution from future power plants.
