Rockefeller enters climate amendment fray, but Tuesday showdown doesn’t materialize

Rockefeller, who fears the impact of EPA rules on his coal-producing state, wants a reprieve from the rules but attacked the mostly GOP plan to nullify EPA’s power outright.

He took to the floor at argue against a “complete emasculation” of EPA and called his plan “more sensible.”

The path ahead for the amendments remains uncertain after the vote was scuttled Tuesday.
