Inhofe Welcomes Boxer Agreement to Hold Hearings on EPA Clean Air Regulations
"I am pleased that Senator Boxer has agreed to my request to conduct critical oversight hearings on the Obama Administration's clean air regulations," Senator Inhofe said. "In a letter to Senator Boxer today, I requested that these hearings focus specifically on those regulations that are projected to threaten the economic viability of America's manufacturing base and put hundreds of thousands of jobs at risk. These rules deserve the full scrutiny of our Committee.
"EPA is clearly moving too far too fast and is in dire need of oversight. I hope the outcome of these hearings will be that we can rein in this regulatory train wreck and get on the right track to achieving a clean air policy that balances environmental progress and economic growth."
