U.S. Senator Murkowski thanks Business Europe

Washington D.C. , 16 June 2010
Dear Business Europe,
I want to express my heartfelt thanks for supporting my resolution S.J. 26 as presented to the U.S. Senate on June 10th. As you know, this resolution would have ensured that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) would not be able to legislate and control greenhouse gas emissions from large point sources. Stopping the EPA from regulating these emissions is very important because it would take away the US administration's leverage to enact a cap and trade bill such as the American Power Act. Unfortunately, the hard work of your members fell short of generating a majority in the Senate.
But rest assured there will be other opportunities to jointly fight climate action and I will call upon your support again.
