House votes to scrap EPA power plant rules

The House voted today 229-183 to block U.S. EPA's plans to limit power plant carbon emissions, striking at the heart of President Obama's Climate Action Plan. The measure by Rep. Ed Whitfield (R-Ky.) would prevent EPA from finalizing its proposal to require carbon capture and storage technology for all new coal-fired power plants and would make rules for existing power plants contingent on congressional approval.
