Jackson addresses industry and policy concerns over EPA move to regulated GHG emitters.
I appreciate the statement, made by your office last week, that you are not likely — at least in the near term — to ask the Senate to adopt a resolution overturning EPA’s finding that greenhouse gas pollution endangers the health and welfare of the American people.
In any event, I believe there is every reason to expect that Congress will enact a comprehensive program to address greenhouse gas pollution — a program that settles any questions about small sources — before 2016. I hope you share that expectation.
So I believe it is appreciate to to greet with some skepticism the recent, unsupported claims that economic harm will result from the measured steps EPA is taking now to comply with the Supreme Court’s conclusion that greenhouse gas pollution falls within the Clean Air Act’s scope. I continue to work toward solutions that serve the mutual goals of environmental protection and economic growth.
