Defunding implementation of the health care law has been a stated goal of House Republicans. But Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Wichita, led a charge Wednesday to similarly dock the dollars accorded to the Environmental Protection Agency and its efforts to collect data on industrial greenhouse-gas emissions. The Pompeo amendment passed on a 239-185 vote. "This data is the very foundation of the EPA's effort to pursue its radical anti-jobs agenda," Pompeo said. "Indeed, continuing the greenhouse-gas registry at currently funded levels will permit the EPA regulatory nose inside the job-destroying tent. We cannot head down this path." However, a new survey of Americans sponsored by the American Lung Association found an overwhelming bipartisan majority wants the EPA to set stricter limits on air pollution and opposes congressional efforts to stop the EPA from updating carbon dioxide standards.
