CR Liberty Score Update

This legislation would have amended the Clean Air Act to block the EPA from instituting a back-door Cap-and-Trade-style tax. Congress rejected Cap-and-Trade legislation but the Obama Administration has turned to regulations promulgated by the EPA to advance radical environmental goals. While this bill passed the House 255 – 172 on Apr. 7, 2011, it received no further action and died in the Senate.
