McHugh On Clear Skies

Listen to this story
Monday, the Environmental Protection Agency issued a formal rule to implement a crucial part of the clear skies plan - called new source review. New York, Vermont and 10 other states immediately sued to block the action, saying that only Congress can make such deep changes to such a bedrock law. Congressman John McHugh is co-sponsor of two bills that would address acid rain. He told Martha Foley he agrees with the states that it should be up to Congress to re-write the clean air rules, not the Bush administration.
