Energy Policy

Former Sen. Lincoln talks prospects for energy bill passage

How will this week's U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit decision to reject an attempt by 15 states to block U.S. EPA from finalizing its Clean Power Plan impact the debate on the plan as a final rule is set to be released this summer? During today's OnPoint, former Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.), principal of the Lincoln Policy Group, explains why she believes the Obama administration has overreached on several major regulations coming out of EPA. She also talks about timing issues that could derail attempts to move an energy package through Congress this year.
