INHOFE COMMENTS ON
ENERGY COMMITTEE’S MARK UP

WASHINGTON, DC – Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Environment & Public Works Committee, today commented on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee mark up.

"I am disappointed that the Energy and Natural Resources Committee decided to weigh in on the fuels issues in their legislation today. The environmental aspects and the legislation’s impact on the Clean Air Act’s regulatory provisions will have to be addressed before it reaches the Senate floor," Senator Inhofe said.

"While I have raised concerns about altering our fuels policies and regulations, groups traditionally not aligned with me have also taken up the issue, such as like Greenpeace, Sierra Club, Union of Concerned Scientists and Natural Resources Defense Council," Senator Inhofe said.
