Litmus Test On New Environment Rules, Thursday

If you’re looking for a litmus test on how the government may react to environmental issues, look no farther than Thursday.

That's when the senate is expected to vote on whether to debate new regulations involving cap and trade. At issue is whether the EPA has the power to implement new regulations under the Clean Air Act.

Republicans have largely argued any issue of this magnitude must only be handled by Congress - not the EPA.

Although nothing will be decided on Thursday, the vote will still be widely followed.

If many Dems vote with Republican's it could reveal “the breadth of resistance to the Obama administration's climate policies,” writes the Wall Street Journal."

What else should you know about these developments. Find out from Rep. Mike Pence (R-Indiana). Watch the video now!
