Inhofe Lays Out Plan To Fight Obama’s EPA Regulations

Sen. James Inhofe plans to use his position on one of the Senate’s most powerful committees to challenge the Obama administration’s push to regulate carbon dioxide emissions and expand federal power over energy and the environment.

The Oklahoma Republican says he will use his chairmanship of the Environment and Public Works Committee to scale back Environmental Protection Agency global warming regulations and other rules that impact drilling, water supplies and private property rights.

“If you talk to people in the real world they’ll tell you that EPA regulations are so onerous they can’t be competitive,” Inhofe told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “President Obama is trying to do the things he couldn’t do through legislation through regulation.”
