McMorris Rodgers Applauds Passage of the SENSE Act

Today, Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement after the House passed H.R. 3797, the Satisfying Energy Needs and Saving the Environment (SENSE) Act.

“As we stand for proper stewardship of our earth, I have long pushed for a true all-of-the-above energy policy,” McMorris Rodgers said. “However, America’s job creators are facing a constant regulatory onslaught from the Obama administration’s EPA.

“The EPA, the agency specifically designed to protect the environment, has become so disconnected from its mission that it’s standing in the way of a responsible, common sense, and innovative method to reduce pollution. Turning coal refuse into energy has obvious environmental benefits, but the compliance costs that come with the EPA’s one-size-fits-all approach to regulations puts this valuable program at risk. With today’s vote, I stood up for an industry responsible for removing more than 200 million tons of material and restoring polluted sites to their former beauty.

“Putting local job creators back in the driver’s seat—where they can make the best decisions for themselves and their communities—is all part of the our bold, forward-looking agenda to build a more confident America.”
