Three House lawmakers unveiled a bill that would prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse gases. Reps. Ike Skelton, D-Mo., and Jo Ann Emerson, R-Mo., joined Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn., chairman of the Agriculture Committee, to sponsor the measure that seeks to amend the Clean Air Act and strip the EPA's ability to issue GHG rules. The bill would also prohibit the inclusion of international land-use changes in determining U.S. renewable-fuels policy, and it calls for an expanded definition of renewable biomass.
