House Votes to Block EPA Power-Plant Rules

<> House Votes to Block EPA Power-Plant Rules - The Republican-controlled House Tuesday approved a pair of measures blocking federal rules to cut power-plant emissions, a symbolic move aimed at sowing doubt about President Barack Obama's climate agenda while world leaders gather in Paris to forge an accord on the problem -- measures passed mainly on partyline votes of 242-180 & 235-188 – White House has already indicated it would veto similar measures passed in the Senate [S.J. Res. 23 and S.J. Res. 24 – resolutions identical to H.J. Res. 71 and H.J. Res. 72]
