Whitfield - What is Obama’s EPA Hiding?

Ed Whitfield new 300WASHINGTON (7/11/14) — Representative Ed Whitfield (KY-01), Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Energy and Power, commented on the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Investigation into the Environmental Protection Agency.

Specifically, the Committee has been trying to obtain information as it relates to the agency’s consideration of carbon capture technologies in developing its greenhouse gas emissions standards for new power plants.

This is important to the Committee’s oversight because EPA claims that carbon capture technologies are readily available, but stakeholders tell a different story. This information was originally requested in March of this year.

“I am pleased that the Committee has elevated this situation,” said Whitfield. “Repeated requests to the EPA for thorough documents relating to the administration’s greenhouse gas regulations have only resulted in EPA releasing mostly those documents that are already publically available. What is Obama’s EPA hiding? We must have transparency from the EPA, and I will not allow this administration to go unchecked at a time when this president’s anti-energy policy destroys jobs and affordable electricity in Kentucky. The fact that this administration is withholding information is unacceptable. There are highly controversial legal and policy issues surrounding the EPA’s power plant regulations, and the American public deserves a full understanding of the consequences of EPA’s regulatory overreach.”
